FOREWORD 

One event of outstanding importance justifies the publica- 
tion of this Second Volume of "The History of the Brigham 
Family" — the discovery of the true story of the English origin 
of the Brigham Family, of which, in the First Volume, all exist- 
ing knowledge began with the arrival in this country of Thomas 
Brigham, the Puritan, in 1635. Mr. J. Gardner Bari;lett, one of 
the most competent of New England genealogists, had gone to 
England in 1914 to trace the British ancestrj^ of Simon Crosby, 
who was a fellow passenger with Thomas Brigham in the Susan 
and Ellen, and whose wife was Ann Brigham, a double first 
cousin of Thomas. While engaged in research in the interest 
of the Crosby family, Mr. Bartlett found the authentic record 
of the family from which Thomas^ Brigham had descended. 
Recognizing its importance to the Brigham family in this 
country, Mr. Bartlett wrote it out into an informative and read- 
able narrative, and kindly tendered it to the officials of the 
Brigham Family Association, at a price which testified rather 
to his zeal in the science which he adorns than to any desire for 
personal profit. Our gratitude for his generosity and our indebted- 
ness for his enterprise and the priceless information he has 
imparted to us is unbounded. 

The highly important Introduction to Mr. Bartlett's Eng- 
lish genealogical data by our own Herbert 0. Brigham, 
State Librarian of Rhode Island, in Providence, R. I., opens 
the story of our English origin and lineage with vivid touches 
of history which enlarge our view of the movements in England 
which sent our ancestor to America. 

The late Willard I. T. Brigham, author of the First Volume 
of "The History of the Brigham Family," spent many months 
in the study of the British records in a futile effort to trace 
the origin and ancestry of Thomas the Emigrant of 1635 ; and 
we are much gratified to be able to state that the authoritative 
record as discovered by Mr. Bartlett confirms Willard 's tenta- 
tive conclusion that Thomas of Cambridge, Massachusetts, was 
born in and emigrated from Yorkshire. 

It becomes important to state, because of the many in- 
quiries regarding a Brigham Coat of Arms, that none of the 



10 The Brigham Family 



descendants of Thomas^ in this country are entitled, through 
him, to use any of the numerous Coats of Arms borne by Brig- 
ham families in England. Mr. Willard I. T. Brigham held the 
idea at one time that Thomas came from the family of Cannon 
End, Oxfordshire, England. He later repudiated this but had, 
meanwhile, prepared copies in colors of the Arms borne by this 
family, as described on page 19 of the H. B. F, These were 
widely distributed and many Brighams have preserved such 
copies. Pins and spoons showing these Arms were given wide 
circulation, also. As given in this volume, the story of the 
origin of Thomas Brigham in a small hamlet in Yorkshire, Eng- 
land, of yeoman stock, although of very ancient lineage, leaves 
no ground for believing that he belonged to an armor-bearing 
family. 

A second reason impelling the publication of the Second 
Volume is that the organization of the Brigham Family Asso- 
ciation has been maintained since the publication of the First 
Volume in 1907. Moreover, careful management has conserved 
the funds of the Association, and the growth of and changes in 
this great family of ours have been so extensive as to warrant 
the use of this money, as far as it will go, in expanding into a 
work of several hundred pages what originally was contemplated 
only as a pamphlet presenting the record of the Brigham line 
across the sea, and such additions and corrections to the existing 
records as had been supplied to the editor. 

It is a matter of pride with us that in addition to having 
published what competent critics declare to be one of the most 
complete and admirably arranged family histories in New Eng- 
land, we are now able to supplement this with a volume of much 
new and equally important material; including, for example, 
not only the English record, but biographical paragraphs of 
much human interest, and stories of hitherto untraced Brig- 
hams, lost lines, persons who have adopted the Brigham name, 
noteworthy intermarriages, etc. 

A feature of this book is the series of historical sketches 
with which the genealogical data of each generation is intro- 
duced. These pages are a running narrative reviewing the 
salient features of the Brighams of the First Volume, with 
picturesque stories of many individuals taken from other 
sources. This is also an effort to show the trend of emigration, 



Foreword 11 

together with the individual results of these movements, north, 
west and south. We have included also many persons whose 
value to their communities has been so apparent that it was a 
matter of record or tradition. Many not so named undoubtedly 
should have a place in such an enumeration, but oft«n the facts 
have not been within our reach. Neither has it been possible 
to speak of still others whose lives have enriched the world in 
quiet ways. In this review, only those whose life-work is finished 
are described in detail. 

No attempt has been made in this book to repeat the gen- 
ealogical records of Volume One, except where this was neces- 
sary for the sake of clearness and to indicate the numbered 
divisions. The heads of these divisions in this volume corres- 
pond in names and numbers with those of the First Volume, 
but only such sections as have additional material are given in 
this book, and even in such cases it is the new material chiefly 
that is set forth. Therefore, it will be essential to resort to the 
earlier volume for full identification of many persons and lines 
mentioned here, but the connection is straight and no difficulty 
will be found in placing families correctly. For these and 
other reasons, both books should be in the library of every one 
interested in Brigham genealogy. Fortunately, copies of Volume 
One are still available for purchase. 

In the pages following another feature may be observed, 
that of sketches illustrating the remarkable force which some 
of the women of our family are exerting in community and 
club life, in music, art, journalism and other professions, and 
in the business world. Insofar as it has been our privilege to 
learn of the devotion and sacrifices of our men and women in 
the late World War, both at home and abroad, we have out- 
lined such services. 

The indebtedness of the family to the genealogist and com- 
piler of this volume. Miss Emma Elisabeth Brigham, can never 
be sufficiently realized, much less expressed. Her energy, un- 
flagging interest and zeal made possible the completion and 
publication of the First Volume, and the present book is all 
her own. Incapacitated for a long time by accident and illness, 
she rallied and renewed the work to which she had set her 
hand. Deprived by death of the associate, Miss Mary Brigham 
of Cambridge, on whom she could ever rely, and whose services 



12 The Brigham Family 

seemed indispensable, she still carried on, although more time 
has been consumed in the work than if greater strength had 
bfen available. "The History of the Brigham Family" as now 
completed is as much a symbol of her devotion as it is a monu- 
ment to the honorable line whose career the two volumes record. 
But Miss Emma E. Brigham has been the first to testify 
also to the generous assistance rendered by many others of the 
blood or name, who have cooperated in the making of this 
Second Volume. To Mrs. Ella Brigham Porter of Marlboro, who 
in the midst of a busy life has striven persistently to complete 
the records of many of the Marlboro families, we are deeply 
indebted; also to Frederick M. Brigham, formerly of Toledo, 
now of Philadelphia, for the discovery of the Orr's Island Brig- 
ham branch, descended from Governor Paul of Vermont and 
his son, Dr. Thomas S. ; also to Will S. Thomas for his mother's 
line (her first marriage and son having been omitted from the 
H. B. F.) — she was a daughter of Dr. Thomas S. ; also to Dr. 
C. W. Drew, of Minneapolis, a descendant of Hepsibah (Brig- 
ham) Taplin, for additions to her family record; to the Shurt- 
leff genealogy; and, again, to the Parkman Diary (whose one 
published portion was so profusely drawn upon in the First 
Volume), particularly the manuscripts deposited with the Massa- 
chusetts Historical Society and the Worcester Antiquarian 
Society, to which our genealogist had free access; to the invalu- 
able and delightful "Historical Reminiscences of Marlboro," 
by the late Mrs. Ella A. Bigelow ; to the late William H. Brig- 
ham of Marlboro, who spent some of his last days in procuring 
additional records of Marlboro families; to Harry Chase Brig- 
ham of Toledo for helpfulness in regard to Toledo families; to 
Mrs. Frank W. Morso of Hudson for the record of the family 
of Hannah (Brigham) Gleason; to Mrs. Joseph Lindsay, Super- 
ior, Wisconsin, for recover^' of the line of her ancestress Sabra 
(Brigham) Hudson, a daughter of Dr. SamueP Brigham of 
Marlboro; to Mrs. D. F, Murray of Plymouth, Michigan, for the 
family of her ancestress, Sarah (Brigham) Gott, a daughter of 
Uriah* of Marlboro; to Mrs. Marshall Marsh of Chicago, for 
the record of Abigail (Brigham) Snow, daughter of Gershom^ 
Brigham of Marlboro; to Miss Georgiana K. Fiske of Grafton, 
who assisted materially in sending additions to the Dinah (Brig- 
ham) Williams branch, a Southboro family, and needed ad- 



Foreword 13 

ditions to the Grafton Brigham record; to E. W. Butterfield of 
Dover, N. H., for additions to line of Ezekiel, No. 79 ; to the late 
George Sawin Stewart, the a/;eomplished genealogist (Stephen, 
Silas, Emily, out of Princeton, Mass., and Brownington, Vt.), 
for his highly important research work on the early line of 
John^ and other families. To all others who so cheerfully res- 
ponded to the many calls upon their time and patience, warm 
thanks are due.

BRIGHAM ANCESTRY IN ENGLAND 

INTRODUCTION 

A search for the English ancestry of Thomas Brigham has 
been conducted by members of the family for many years and 
"The History of the Brigham Family" gives an account of the 
various conjectures regarding the English ancestrj'. 

In 1914 J. Gardner Bartlett of Boston, a genealogist of high 
repute and one of the leading authorities on the English lines 
of ancestry of the early settlers of New England, brought to the 
attention of the compiler of this Second Volume some material 
that he had unearthed in making a research for the English an- 
cestry of the emigrant, Simon Crosby, in behalf of the late ]\Irs. 
Eleanor D. Crosby, the compiler of the Crosby genealogy. Mr. 
Bartlett observed a close relationship between Simon Crosby 
and Thomas Brigham, who came to America together. 

In the spring of 1635 a small party of Yorkshire men, 
under the guidance of Rev. Thomas Shepard, who had been 
preaching at Buttercrambe in Yorkshire, decided to emigrate 
with him to New England, and went to London where, on April 
18, 1635, they embarked on the ship Susan and Ellen. In the 
passenger list appear the names of Thomas Brigham, Simon 
Crosby, his wife Ann and their small children. About twelve 
miles south of Buttercrambe is the rural parish known as 
Holme-on-Spalding-Moor and here is found the original loca- 
tion of both the Brigham and the Crosby families. This place, 
named in the Rand-McNally Atlas as ' ' Holme, ' ' is situated about 
half-way betM^een the cities of Hull and York, about twenty- 
five miles from the North Sea and about ten miles north of the 
River Humber. P^rom the first ancient registry book of this 
little parish, Mr. Bartlett obtained many valuable records which 
establish the ancestry of Thomas Brigham. The book was found 
to be in wretched condition, mutilated and discolored, with sev- 
eral gaps due to lost pages, and with much of the writing illeg- 
ible; but from an examination of this volume and other corre- 
lative data, he has prepared the appended pedigree which ex- 
tends back to 1475. About that year a Thomas Brigham was 
born (the name Thomas appears to continue through many gen- 



If) The Brigiiam Family 

erations). and in 1528 he is recorded on the rental roll of the 
Manor of Holme as holding a toft, an orchard, a bam, a close 
and half a bovate of land. He was probably the father of 
Thomas 2d, born about 1500, who appears as Thomas Brigham, 
Jr., on the same rental roll of 1528, holding property in Holme- 
on-Spalding-!Moor. He was married about 1525 to a person whose 
first name was Elizabeth, but she outlived him by several years, 
his death occurring in 1560, his wife's in 1573. He also had a 
son Thomas 3d, bom about 1525, who married in 1548 Janet 
Milliiigton, a daughter of William and Barbara Millington. 
He was a yeoman, lived throughout his life at Holme, and died 
in 1599 leaving a will proved that year. 

Thomas the 4th, born about 1549, is mentioned in the will 
of his father, also in the will of his cousin Peter Millington. He 
was a Webster, or cloth worker, married a woman whose first 
name was Gillian, and died in 1586. Our line of Thomases is 
broken by a son named John, born about 1573, who resided in 
his native parish and in the adjoining parish of Hotham. He 
married in 1599 Constance Watson, the daughter of James 
Watson. She is mentioned in the wills of her father, her sister 
and her brother-in-law Robert Brigham. 

On account of the loss of the registers between 1601 and 
1628 the baptismal record of only the eldest child of John is 
preserved, but in the will in 1640 of Robert Brigham, the brother 
of John, there are named six children of John, viz., William, 
John, Robert, Gillian, Margaret and Phillippa, all "now in this 
land." Undoubtedly this phrase signifies there were other 
children not then in England, evidently referring to the emi- 
grants Thomas and Sebastian Brigham who were across the 
seas in company with Simon and Ann Crosby, Ann the wife 
of Simon Crosby being their own-cousin and a daughter of 
Thomas Brigham, a brother of John and Robert. This brings 
us down to Thomas Brigham, the Puritan, who was bom about 
1603, .son of John, and named for his grand-father. He is evi- 
dently one of the "other three children" of John Brigham 
given bequests in the will of their great-grand-uncle Henry 
Brigham of Seaton in 1606. 

An interesting corroboration of the conclusions of Mr. Bart- 
lett concerning the will of Thomas Brigham, a will which did 
not even mention his name, but noted six children "now in 



Introduction 17 



this land," came to light in the publication, "Letters of the 
Earl of Barrington," where, by a curious chance, a letter writ- 
ten by the Rev. Thomas Shepard to the Earl of Harrington in 
1641 contained the following stray phrase: "I am sending this 
message to you by the hands of one Sebastian Brigham who is re- 
turning to England about some estate that has befallen him." 
The letter was written in March, 1641, and Robert Brigham had 
made his will in the previous November. There was the definite 
proof that the shrewd guess of our genealogist, J. Gardner Bart- 
lett, was absolutely correct. 

After the arrival of Thomas Brigham and Simon Crosby 
in this country, the life of Thomas Brigham and his descendants 
is detailed in "The History of the Brigham Family," First 
Volume, and in the Second Volume, that of his ancestry and 
descendants not enumerated in the First Volume. 

Just a word about Sebastian, the brother of Thomas, who 
came to this country for a period of twenty years. The bap- 
tism of two of his children appears on the Holme registers in 
1635 and 1637, and he came out to the new world in 1638 in 
company with the Rev. Ezekiel Rogers of Rowley, county York 
(about twelve miles south-east of Holme), who founded the town 
of Rowley, Mass. Sebastian first went to Cambridge where his 
brother Thomas Brigham and his own-cousin Ann Crosby, wife 
of Simon Crosby, were living, and bought a house there; but 
a few months later he sold this house and moved to Rowley 
where he was a captain of the military company and deputy to 
the Massachusetts Court. He probably returned permanently 
to England about 1656. 

The Brighams in England were not armorial and land-own- 
ing gentry of great means, and with one exception — Robert, 
who died in 1640, they had modest properties. They were lease- 
hold yeomanry of the best class, and the family was of good sub- 
stance and esteem in that section of Yorkshire. The Hobne reg- 
isters show numerous entries regarding the Brigham family, 
and we are able to identify and correctly place nearly all of the 
names in these registers. 

In conclusion there should be noted the close relationship 
between Thomas and Ann Crosby. Their fathers were brothers, 
their mothers were sisters — an unusual type of double cousin- 
ship. Thomas Brigham, Simon Crosby, his wife Ann Brigham, 



18 The Brigham Family 

Constance Brigham Crosby, the widow of Robert, and Sebastian 
Brigham, were all young people together in the same place in 
England. Thomas, Simon and Ann settled in Cambridge; Se- 
bastian and Constance with her three daughters in Rowley. 
Later Simon's children removed to Barnstable County, Thomas' 
children removed to Marlboro with their mother upon her second 
marriage, and Constance's children, all girls, married, and some 
of their descendants are in the middle and far west. Thus the 
three lines which should have kept in close touch with each 
other, on account of the nearness of relationship, were all 
separated and lost to each other.

vi Francis* (posthumous), b. in 1559; is mentioned in the will of 
his cousin Peter Tomlinson, alias Millington, of Holme on 
Spalding Moor, dated 21 Dec, 1584, which left bequests to 
Thomas Brigham and Francis Brigham, "sonnes of Thomas 
Brigham. my uncle." (P. and E. York Wills, vol. 22, fol. 
677.) He evidently d. unmarried. 



4. THOMAS* BRIGHAM (Thomas^ Thomas^, Thomas^), 
born about 1549, is mentioned in the will of his father dated 25 
Oct., 1558, previously given ; also was given a bequest in the 
will of his cousin Peter Tomlinson alias Millington, dated 21 Dec. 
1584, as mentioned above. (P. and E. York Wills, vol. 15, part 
3, fol. 347, and vol. 22, fol. 677.) He was a cloth-worker as in 
his burial record of 8 Nov., 1586, he is called a "webster." On 
3 May, 1587, administration on his estate was given to his widow 
GiUan. (Adm. Act Books, P. and E. Court of York, Harthill 
Deanery. ) 

He married about 1571, Gillian , who survived him. 

Children : 

i Elizabeths, b. about 1571; m. 20 Sept., 1590, Edward Palmer, 
of Holme on Spalding Moor. They had at least five chil- 
dren who were given bequests by the will of their great- 
grand uncle, Henrys Brigham, of Seaton, dated 30 June, 
1606, as previously given. (P. and E. York Wills, vol. 30, 
fol. 165.) 

5 ii John, b. about 1573. 

6 iii Thomas, bapt. 21 May, 1575. 

iv William, bapt. 17 June, 1578; bur. 17 Aug., 1578. 
v Richard, bapt. 16 Aug., 1579, was the chief legatee of the will 
of his grcat-unele, Ilcury^ Brigham, of Seaton, dated 30 
June, 1606, as previously given. (P. and E. York Wills, 
vol. 30, fol. 165.) He d. about 1627. His nuncupative will 
left all his estate to his wife, she to be sole executrix; 
proved by the widow, 4 May, 1627. (P. and E. York Wills, 
vol. 39, fol. 170.) As this instrument names no children 
and the Holme registers from 1601 to 1628 are lost, the 



22 The Brigham Family 



names of not all his children are known. He m. after 

1606, Anne ; she m. (2), 3 Dec. 1627, William Madson. 

Child: 1 Thomaso, b. probably about 1610; was given a hat 
in the will of his uncle Robert Brigham, dated 5 Sept., 1640: 
the will also gave a lamb to Marmaduke", son of this 
Thomas Brigham. (P. and E. York Wills, original will, 
1640.) He also had a son Richards, bapt. 21 Sept., 1638. 

Roberts, bapt. 20 May, 1582, lived in Holme on Spalding Moor, 
where ho was bur. 8 Sept., 1640. He seems to have had 
more business ability than his brothers, and acquired con- 
siderable estate. He was assessed 5s on goods worth £3 in 
a subsidy of 7 James I (1609); and in the subsidy of 4 
C'ha.s. I (1628), he also appears, being taxed 8s on goods 
valued at £3. (Lay Subsidies, Public Record Office, 204-401 
and 204-441).) He was a legatee in the will of his great-uncle 
Henrys Brigham, of Seaton, dated 30 June, 1606, as pre- 
viously given. (P. and E. York Wills, vol. 30, fol. 165.) In 
a chancery suit of Thomas Mawburne vs. Francis Bacon, 
on 13 Apr., 1625, Robert Brigham of Holme on Spalding- 
more, co. York, aged forty-two years, deposed he married 
the mother of complainant, etc.; and his wife, Dorothy 
Brigham, aged fifty-four years, deposes she was formerly 
wife of Robert Mawburne and is mother of William and 
Thomas Mawburne, etc. (Chancery Depositions, 1558-1649, 
M-12-19, Public Record Office, London.)

second husband, but brought him a large estate. Children: 
1 Prudence^, m. 14 Nov., 1637, Barnard Hammond (or 
Awmond) ; 2 Anne, living 1640. 

5. JOHN« BRIGHAM (Thomas*, Thomas^ Thomas^ 
Thomas^) born in Holme on Spalding Moor about 1573, resided 
in his native parish and later in the adjoining parish of Hotham 
where he died in 1621. His (eldest) son Henry and three other 
children (unnamed) were given legacies in the will of his great- 
uncle Henry^ Brigham of Seaton, dated 30 June, 1606, pre\nously 
given. (P. and E. York Wills, vol. 30, fol. 165.) On 11 IMay, 
1621, administration on the estate of John Brigham of Hotham, 
deceased, was granted to his widow Custance Brigham. (Adm. 
Act Books, P. and E. Court of York, Harthill Deanery.) 

He married 30 Sept., 1599, Constance Watson, baptized 
17 Aug., 1578, daughter of James Watson, and sister of Isabel 
Watson the wife of his brother Thomas'^ Brigham; she is men- 
tioned in the wills of her father, James Watson, dated 10 July, 
1615, her sister Isabel Brigham dated 8 June, 1634, and her 



24 The Brigham Family 

brother-in-law Robert" Brigham, dated 5 Sept., 1640. (P. and 
E. York WiUs, vol. 34, fol. 95, vol. 42, fol. 281, and original will 
for 1640.) 

On account of the loss of the registers of Holme on Spald- 
ing Moor between 1601 and 1628, the baptismal record of only 
Henry", the eldest child of John'' and Constance (Watson) Brig- 
ham, is now preserved ; but the will of Robert' Brigham (brother 
of John'), in 1640, previously given, names six others, William, 
John, Robert, Gillian, Margaret, and Phillippa, all "now in 
this laud," thus clearly indicating there were others then out 
of England, evidently referring to Thomas® Brigham who ac- 
companied his own-cousin Anne" (Brigham) Crosby, wife of 
Simon Crosby, to New England in the ship Susan and Ellen 
in April 1635, and Sebastian" Brigham who emigrated to New 
England in the autumn of 1638 in the company led by Rev. 
Ezekiel Rogers of Rowley in Yorkshire, a parish about a dozen 
miles southeast of Holme on Spalding Moor. The order of 
births of these ten children is uncertain. 

Children : 

i Henry", bapt. 27 Dec, 1599, is named in the will of his great- 
grand uncle Henrys Brigham of Seaton dated 30 June, 1606, 
and also in the will of his uncle Kobert^ Brigham, dated 5 
Sept., 1640, both previously given. 

ii Gillian, b. perhaps about 1601; named in will of her uncle 
Kobert^ Brigham in 1610. 

7 iii Thomas, b. about 1603; named for his grandfather; is not 

named in the will of his uncle Roberts Brigham in IG-iO, 
but evidently referred to; emigrated to New England iu 
1635. 

iv Margaret, b. perhaps about 1605; named in the will of her uuclc 
Robert^ Brigham in 1640. 

v William, b. perhaps about 160?; named iu the will of his 
uncle Robert^ Brigham in 1640. His wife Margaret was 
bur, at Holme on Spalding Moor, 5 Mar. 1633-4. 

8 vi Sebastian, b. perhaps about 1609; not named in the will of his 

uncle Roberts Brigham in 1640, but evidently referred to; 
emigrated to New England in 1638.

Roberts Brigham in 1640. lie m. at Holme on Spalding 
Moor, 1 Nov., 16:^7, Mary Anderson. Child: 1 Anne", 
bapt. in Nov., 1638.

The Brigham Pedigree 25 

6. THOMAS'' BRIGHAM (Thomas*, Thomas^ Thomas^, 
Thomas^), baptized at Holme on Spalding Moor, 21 May, 1575, 
is mentioned with his two children in the will of his great-uncle 
Henry^ Brigham of Seaton, dated 30 June, 1606, as previously 
given. 

On 19 Mar., 1632-3, administration on the estate of Thomas 
Brigham of Holme in Spaldingmore, deceased, was given to 
(his daughters) Anna Brigham and Constance Brigham alias 
Crosby. (Amd. Act Books, P. and E. Court of York, Harthill 
Deanery.) The fact that this administration was given to 
daughters is evidence that Thomas'' Brigham left no son. 

Thomas^ Brigham married 4 Feb., 1600-1, Mrs. Isabel (Wat- 
son) Ellithorpe, bapt. at Holme on Spalding Moor 21 Feb., 1560- 
1, daughter of James Watson,* and widow of Richard Elli- 
thorpe t to whom she had been married on 27 Oct., 1583. It is 
a curious fact that this Thomas^ Brigham and his youngest 
brother Robert^ Brigham both married widows over a dozen 
years older than themselves. Isabel (Watson-Ellithorpe), wife 
of Thomas' Brigham, was the eldest sister of Constance Watson, 
wife of John^ Brigham, eldest brother of Thomas-^' Brigham. 

Mrs. Isabel (Watson-Ellithorpe) Brigham, widow of 
Thomas' Brigham, was buried 25 June, 1634, and left the follow- 
ing will: 

June the Eight day Anno d™ 1634. In the name of God

Children of Thomas^ and Isabel (Watson-Ellithorpe) 
Brigham, born at Holme on Spalding Moor: 

i Constanceo, b. about 1602, was an administratrix of the estate 
of her father in 1632. She m. about 1622, Robert Crosby, 
bapt. 30 Oct., 1596, d. about 1640. She came to New Eng- 
land, a widow, with her three daughters, was granted a 
houselot at Rowley, Mass., before 1643, and was bur. there 
25 Jan., 1G83-4. Children (Crosby), bapt. at Holme on Spald- 
ing Moor: 1 John, bapt. 25 Jan., 1623-4, d. young; 2 tfane, 
bapt. 22 Apr., 1627, m. at Rowley, Mass., 29 Oct., 1644, John 
Pickard; 3 Mary, bapt. 4 Dec, 1629, m. at Rowley, Mass., 
16 Jan., 1647-8,' Richard Longhorne; 4 Robert, bapt. 22 
July, 1632, d. young; 5 Hannah, bapt. 31 Oct., 1634, m. at 
Rowley, Mass., 6 Dec, 1655, John Johnson. 

ii Anne, b. about 1606, was an administratrix of her father in 
1632. She m. (1), at Holme on Spalding Moor, 21 Apr., 
1634, Simon Crosby, b. about 1608, youngest son of Thomas 
and Jane (Sotheron) Crosby. They came to New England 
with her cousin Thomas^ Brigham in the ship Susan and 
Ellen in the spring of 1635 and settled at Cambridge, Mass., 
where he d. in Sept., 1639. She m. (2), in 1645, Rev. Wil- 
liam Tompson of Eraintree, Mass., where she d. 11 Oct., 
1675, aged sixty-nine years according to her gravestone. 
Children (Crosby): 1 Thomas, bapt. at Holme on Spalding 
Moor, 26 Feb., 1634-5; 2 Simon, b. at Cambridge, Mass., 
in Aug., 1637; 3 Joseph, b. at Cambridge, Mass., in Feb., 
1638-9. 

7. THO^rAS" BRIGHAM (John", Thomas^ Thomas^ 
Thomas-, Thomas^), was born about 1603 and named for his 



The Brigham Pedigree 27 

grandfather; but as the registers of Holme on Spalding IMoor 
are lost from 1601 to 1628, his baptismal record is not preserved, 
and as he did not marry until after his removal to New Eng- 
land in 1635, there is no mention of his name in the registers 
preserved after 1628. He is evidently one of "the other three 
children" of John"' Brigham, referred to but not named in the 
will of his great-grand-uncle Henry^ Brigham of Seaton dated 
30 June, 1606, previously given. He is also evidently referred 
to in the will of his uncle Robert^ Brigham in 1640, who names 
seven children of John*^ Brigham as "now in this land," signify- 
ing there were others not then in England. As his parents 
did not leave wills, no mention of him has been found in Eng- 
land, except on the sailing list which follows. 

In the spring of 1635, a small party of Yorkshire adherents 
of Rev. Thomas Shepherd, who had been preaching at Butter- 
crambe, a few miles north of Holme on Spalding Moor, decided 
to emigrate with him to New England, and went to London, 
where on 18 April, 1635, they embarked among the passengers 
of the ship Susan and Ellen. In the passenger list appears : 

Tho: Briggham (aged) 32 
Symon Crosby, husbandman (aged) 26 
Ann Crosby, uxor (aged) 25 
Tho: Crosby child (aged) 8 weeks 
(See "Hotten's Lists of Emigrants to America," page 62.) 

As previously shown, Ann® the wife of Simon Crosby was 
daughter of Thomas^ and Isabel (Watson) Brigham, and the 
circumst'antial evidence previously given can leave no doubt 
that Thomas" Brigham, her fellow passenger, was her own 
first cousin, doubly related, and a son of John^ and Constance 
(Watson) Brigham. 

Soon after reaching New England, Thomas® Brigham settled 
in Cambridge, Mass., where the Crosbys also located, his home- 
stead adjoining that of Simon Crosby, and where he resided 
until his death, 8 Dec, 1653. 

He married in New England about 1639, Mercy ; 

she married second, as a second wife, 1 Mar., 1665-6, Dea. 
Edmund Rice of Sudburj', INIass., later of IMarlborough, :Mass., 
where he died 3 May, 1663. She married for her third husband, 
in Oct. or Nov., 1664, William Ilimt of Marlborough, Mass., 



28 The Brigham Family 

who died in Oct., 1667. She died in Marlborough 22 Dee., 1693. 
On her second marriage and removal to Marlborough she took 
thither her Brigham children. 

Children of Thomas" and (Mercy) Brigham, born in Cam- 
bridge, Mass. : 

i Mary', b. about 1640; m. about 1668, John Fay of Marlborough, 

Mass. 
ii Thomas, b. about 1642; settled in Marlborough, Mass. 
iii John, b. 9 Mar. 1644-5; settled in Marlborough, Mass.

Eames, and m. (2), about 1679, William Ward, both of 

Marlborough, Mass. 

V Samuel, b. 12 Jan., 1652-3, settled in Marlborough, Mass. 

8. SEBASTIAN^ BRIGHAM (John", Thomas*, Thomas^ 
Thomas-, Thomas^), was born in Holme on Spalding ISloor, per- 
haps about 1609, the registers being lost for the period of his 
baptism. He is evidently referred to as not in England in the 
will of his uncle Robert^ Brigham in 1640. The baptisms of 
two of his children appear on the Holme registers, and in the 
autumn of 1638 he was in the company of adherents of Rev. 
Ezekial Rogers of Rowley, co. York, England, who emigrated 
to New England and the next spring founded the town of Row- 
ley, ]\Iass. Sebastian Brigham went first to Cambridge, Mass. 
(where his brother Thomas^ Brigham and cousin IMrs. Anne" 
[Brigham] Crosby had located three years previously), and 
bought a house at the corner of the present Holyoke and Win- 
throp Streets; but a few months later he sold this house and 
removed to Rowley, Mass., where most of his old friends in 
England located, and where he was captain of the military com- 
pany and deputy to the Mass. General Court. He probably re- 
turned with his family to England about 1656. 

He married in England about 1634, Mary . 

Children : 

i Timothy", bapt. at Holme on Spalding Moor, 24 Aug., 1635. 

ii Mary, bapt. at Holme on Spalding Moor, 30 Oct., 1637. 

iii Sarah, b. in Rowley, Mass., 12 July, 1640. 

iv Elizabeth, b. in Rowley, Mass., 7 June, 1643.

FIRST GENERATION 

GENEALOGY 

1 THOMAS^ BRIGHAM, born in Holnie-on-Spalding- 
Moor, Yorkshire, England, in 1603, d. in Cambridge, Mass., 8 
Dee., 1653 ; m. Mercy, whose surname is supposed to have been 
Hurd, who was probably b. in England, and d. in Marlboro, 
Mass., 23 Dee., 1693; she m. (2) Edmund Rice of Marlboro, and 
they had two daughters ; she died the widow of William Hunt 
of Marlboro, her third husband. The name Hurd is only tra- 
ditional, and the Rice Genealogy by Ward is responsible for 
the tradition. The legend on the illustration of box which 
faces page 53 of the H. B. F. should read "Mercy Hunt's Cap 
box." 

For the children born to Thomas and Mercy see page 5-4 
of the First Volume. For the story of Thomas Brigham, see 
the results of the research in England of "Sir. J. Gardner Bart- 
lett, beginning on page 19 of this volume, and the chapter on 
page 33 of the First Volume, written by Mr. Henry A. Phillips, 
now of Millbury, Mass. 

It is believed that, when Mercy Brigham married Ed- 
mund Rice and came to Marlboro, they lived in the vicinity 
of the old Ephraim Brigham house on Clover Hill, and there 
the Brigham boys, Thomas, John and Samuel, and their sist^s, 
Mary and Hannah, had their first home in Marlboro. 



SECOND GENERATION 

REVIEW 

Brigham pilgrims to-day in visiting Marlboro always ask 
to see the house and farm of the second Thomas Brigham. The 
house in which he lived has long been a thing of the past and 
the present one is entirely modern, but the land he bought of 
Edmund Rice, his step-father, is there and the well from which 
he drank. 

"Bring me a goblet from the we'll 

As our first father knew it, 
Where to the depths the bucket fell 

And sparkling forth he drew it. 
And we will drink the health of each 

And every Brigham brother, 
Far as the golden links may reach. 

Back to our island mother." 

— Dwight Williams. 

Martha L. Ames says: "In one sense the life of Thomas 
Brigham the second seems not far away from our time. The 
road winding through the valley where his dwelling stood ; 
the fair and fertile fields which he cultivated ; the statelj'' and 
beautiful trees on which he no doubt often gazed have come 
down through generations of his descendants, uniting the past 
with the present. We think of him as often passing this way 
to church or elsewhere, enjoying the distant scenery and the 
magnificent sunsets, even as we do now. Yet, in reality, we 
know little of his life. There are many missing links in the 
chain of events which only imagination can supply. Living 
in those troublous times, when wars followed each other in 
quick succession, he must have been surrounded by elements 
of danger of which only the echo comes down to us. He is 
said to have been a large, strong man of whom the Indians 
stood greatly in awe. It was his custom in war times, when 
going to mill, to have an escort of two dogs and two guns. 
Probably the guns, if not the dogs, accompanied him to church 
and other places." 



Second Generation 31 



A full description of Thomas Brigham's home and his 
history, as far as known, may be found in "The History of the 
Brigham Family," pages 64-70. The brook, "with marge of 
garden, wood and fallow," still flows through the land, an 
outlet of Williams Pond, finally emptying into Assabet River. 
The Brighams were yeomen, as the story of our English origin 
reveals. 

"From wood crowned hill to river hrink 
We own a yeoman glory." 

John Brigham, the second son, named without doubt for 
his English grandfather, was a very popular man and was 
called upon for public service yevy often. Some of the Brig- 
hams of the present day and in earlier days, though in some 
cases not directly descended from him, possess what has been 
called "his exuberance of activity, his ubiquitous absorption 
here and there into this and that problem of the place and 
the hour." One cannot but regret that his large capacitj^ for 
affairs and his many-sided genius could not have been exer- 
cised in our day and generation, which is so rich in the activi- 
ties in which he would have delighted, instead of in the back- 
woods of a pioneer town. He was a solitary settler, living in 
a cabin in the wild land of the present Northboro, where he 
had a saw-mill; and a dam, partly of native rock, gave him 
the needed power. When the Indians drove him away from 
his cabin, he came back to the company of his friends and 
neighbors. In Marlboro, he probably lived near and northwest 
from the present French church ; in Northboro, his residence, 
whether the cabin or a later dwelling, is called to-day the 
"Priest Whitney Place"; in Sudbury, where he lived long 
years, his home was on the old Sudbury and Marlboro road, 
near the town line. To sum up his activities, we will quote 
an historian of Worcester County : 

"John Brigham, the doctor, surveyor. Commissioner of the 
General Court, land speculator, and the most enterprising man 
in town." 

The two daughters of the immigrant, ]Mary Brigham. wife 
of John Fay, the eldest child, and the first Brigham born on 
American soil, and her sister Hannah Brigham, with two hus- 



32 TuE Briqham Family 

bands to her credit, Gershora Eames and William Ward, were 
probably not exempt from the usual lot of pioneer women, 
wives of farmers and mothers of large families, burden-bearers 
of the race. Mary, escaping to Watertown from an Indian 
raid, found there only a grave for herself and young son, 
David, just coming five years old. She was probably laid by 
or near lier parents, Thomas and Mercy, whose graves to this 
day no man has discovered. She left two sons and a daughter. 
Hannah, more fortunate in length of life, was tragically sad- 
dened by the untoward fate of one of her eight children, 
Elisha, either killed or taken prisoner by the Indians. The 
pathos of it creeps into Hannah's will in which she says, "And 
if Elisha shall ever come again," he is to receive some money, 
(^ne of the dark shadows of our New England pioneer days is 
the heart-break over the unknown fates of loved ones, when 
the Indians revenged themselves on the white man. 

The third son and youngest child, Samuel Brigham, more 
than a year old when his father died, founded the tanning 
business and incidentally the shoe trade of Marlboro and 
Hudson. He lived on the present East Main Street in Marl- 
boro, a quarter of a mile east of the old Academy. His grave 
is the only one of the first or second generation of Brighams 
which is known. It may be found in the rear of the High 
School building, in the old cemetery. He, too, following in 
the line of his brother John's public service, went to the legis- 
lature or General Court, three times at least. Tradition says 
he was town treasurer, but some of the old records were burned 
and there is nothing forthcoming to prove this. He was, how- 
ever, a man of affairs, and left a good estate. He was 61 at 
the lime of his death. Thomas was 76, ]Mary but 38, Hannah 
69, but John exceeded them all, living to be 83. 

Thus lived and died these men and women of the second 
generation of Brighams in America, and they left the world 
knowing that they had made their corner of it a better place 
in which to live, through their lifelong efforts. 



SECOND GENERATION 

GENEALOGY 

2 MARY' (BRIGHAM) FAY, b. probably in Cambridge, 
Mass., about 1638, the first Brigham born in America ; d. in 
Watertown in 1676 ; wife of John Fay, the emigrant of Marl- 
boro, Mass. (M690). She was the mother of four children. 
The marriage of Mary and John was the prelude to thirty-two 
or more marriages between the Fays and Brighams. As early 
as 1669 John Fay's name is on the Marlboro records when he 
was made a freeman and assigned fifty acres of land. Ch. 
(Fay) additions : 

i John2, Jr., lost his wife, Elizabeth Wellington, in 1729. The 
W. v. E. report that John Fay, in 1744, m. (2) the widow, 
Mary Eice. The H. M. and the H. B. F. state that he m. 
(2) Levinah Brigham. No Levinah Biigham was b. before 
1733. It is true that Willard Brigham, the genealogist, 
gives a Levinah to Elnathans Brigham and marries her to 
John2 Fay, Jr., but Morse calls her "Dinah," and so does 
the M. V. E, In this volume, a marriage of this John Fay 
with a Levinah Brigham is repudiated, and the name of 
Elnathan's dau. is restored to "Dinah." 

3 THOMAS^ BRIGHAM, born in Cambridge and of 
Marlboro, Mass. (1640-1716); his wife, Mary (Rice), the dau. 
of Henry and Elizabeth (Moore) Rice, was descended through 
her mother from the Whale family. Mary's grandfather, John 
Moore, of Sudbury, came on the "Planter" in 1635 with his 
wife, Elizabeth, dau. of Philemon, Jr., and Elizabeth Whale. 
A writer, "H. H. H.," on the genealogical page of the Boston 
Evening Transcript stated that the Whales Avere of Chickney, 
Essex Co., England. The Moore and Whale families were in 
Sudbury by 1642 or 1643. This will interest all descendants 
of Thomas and Mary (Rice) Brigham, who are numbered by 
the thousands. Thomas and Mary Brigham's children, Nos. 
7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and a daughter Mary, viii, under her father, left 
descendants (See H. B. F.). One little girl, however, who d. 
in infancy, has failed of a place in the H. B. F., viz. : 

viia Priscillas Brigham, b. in Feb., 1684-85; d. 10 Apr., 1685. (M. R.) 



34 The Brigham Family 

4 JOHN- BRIGIIAM of Sudbury, born in Cambridge, 
Mass. (1644-45-1728) ; m. (1) Sarah Davis, b. 10 Apr., 1646, 
and d. between 1691-98, the only child of Robert and Bridget 
Davis; m. (2) Deborah (Haynes) Brown, widow of Jabez 
Brown of Stow and dau. of Josiah Haynes of Sudbury ; his 
third wife was Sarah Bowker, as recorded in the H. B. F. 

viii There is no evidence that John2 Brigham had a son Samuel 
as stated in H. B. F. Abigail Moore, there recorded as his 
wife, m. Capt. SamucP Brigham, No. 16 in H. B. F. 

5 HANNAH^ (Brigham) EAMES WARD, born in Cam- 
bridge, Mass. (1649-50-1719-20), widow of Gershom Fames, m. 
(2) William Ward. Ch. (Fames) : 

i Hannahs, b. 3 Feb., 1671 (not 1675). 

ii Martha, b. 13 Aug., 1674 (M. V. R.), not mentioned in H. B. F. 
iii Mary, m. Major John Keyes, who was doubtless the son of 
Solomon2 Keyes of Chelmsford, Mass., instead of the son 
of Elias and Sarah (Blanford) Keyes, as recorded in 
H. B. F. This information came from the writer who 
signed "Mack" in the Boston Evening Transcript, who had 
made special research in regard to the subject. The m. of 
Mary Fames and John Keyes occurred 11 March, 1695-96, 
not 1695 (M. V. E.). Their son, Gershom* Keyes, was b. 
1 March, 1697-98 (not 1698). The M. V. R. state that he 

m. Eager (not Sarah, as in H. B. F.). The record 

of the eldest son of Hannah (Brigham) Eames' 2d m. to 
William Ward (which m. probably occurred in 1679) is 
corrected as follows. Ch. (Ward): 
iv William'', b. 27 May, 1680 (not March), may be the Deacon 
William Ward, who d. in Southboro, 12 Jan., 1756. The 
record of his children in the H. B. F. is imperfect. Ch. 
(Ward): 1 Hezokiah*, b. 28 June, 1703; 2 Jonathan, b. 
. 4 Apr., 1705; 3 Bathshebah, b. 18 Oct., 1706; 4 Hepsibah, 
b. 30 Dec, 1708; 5 Elisha, b. 30 July, 1712; 6 William, 
b. 16 Oct., 1714; 7 Hannah, b. 12 March, 1717; 8 Jane, 
b. 9 May, 1719; 9 Abigail, b. 17 Apr., 1720; 10 Charles, 
b. 27 Oct., 1722; 11 Submit, b. 5 June, and d. 6 June, 1726. 



6 SAMUEL^ Brigham of Marlboro, born in Cambridge, 
Mas.s. (1652-1713), m. in 1683 (M. V. R.), Elizabeth, dau. of 
Abraham and Hannah (Ward) How, b. 5 Apr., 1664 (M. V. R. 
say 1665), d. 26 July, 1739. Abraham mentions in his will 
his dau. Elizabeth Brigham ; she api)ears as the second heir 
in a deed of the heirs of Abraham How, dated June 10, 1726. 
This answers a request for the authority for this marriage.

THIRD GENERATION 

REVIEW 

The last of the second generation of Brighams passed 
away in 1728, and the third generation of men carried on the 
farms of their fathers or ventured to go as far as Grafton in 
the search for new lands. The fear of the Indians prevented 
much emigration. Nathan and Charles of this period were 
of those who bought land of the Indians in Grafton, became 
proprietors there and Charles settled there. The daughters 
of Thomas, John and Samuel had gone to homes of their own 
with the husbands they had chosen. Daughters did not get 
very much out of their fathers' estate if there were sons. 
The acres the second Thomas had acquired, and the records 
read as if they Avere many, had been divided among his sons, 
five of them, and the one daughter, Mary, had some money 
and household utensils. It has always been a query why 
Elnathan went as far away as Connecticut the next year after 
his father died. He is the only one of the third set of men 
who went into the wilderness in search of a home. His father's 
will left him twenty-two acres of land, and one-half of the 
".Sedar swamp that is in Chancy swamp." His brothers appear 
to have had more land than he, but possibly his father had 
provided for him in his lifetime. However, off he went, and 
founded a fine line of Brighams. His descendants have been 
people of worth and some of large distinction. 

Although Nathan, the eldest son of the second Thomas, 
was credited by the "History of Marlboro," by Abner Morse in 
his genealogy of the Brighams, and by the late Willard I. T. 
Brigham, with marrying into the Howe family, it has now been 
proved that he married the daughter of John Maynard, Jr. 
This will change many an ancestral tree. See No. 7, this 
volume. 

Jonathan, the fourth son of Thomas', the second to arrive 
at adult age, two having died, lived to a great age, 93, and 
was called the "Indian Warrior." In the time of the garrisons, 
he belonged to that of his father, on whose place he had built 
his house. He was one of the executors of his father's will, 
and held numerous town offices. 



Third Generation 37 



David, the fifth child, went to Westboro, where his ex- 
tensive farm, on or near Chauncey Pond, is now occupied in 
part by the Insane Asylum. He also was one of the executors 
of his father's will. In his old age he was burned out (see foot- 
note, vol. 1, p. 86) and his death is vividly reported in the 
Parkman Diary. See this vol., No. 9. 

The old records revealed that Gershom, No. 10, had a 
second marriage, which had not been mentioned in our gen- 
ealogies. Also, a number of descendants of his daughter, 
Abigail Snow, are entered in this volume. There are changes 
in the records of nearly all the families of these early Brig- 
hams, which will be well worth noting. 

Mary (Brigham) Fay, wife of Gershom Fay, and the 
courageous daughter of John^, whose daring defence of the 
fort during an Indian raid is told under No. 13, Vol. 1, appears 
to have fallen under her father's displeasure, after she became 
a widow. In case she marries, against his will, a certain 
schoolmaster named "Tounsend late of Westbury," John cuts 
her off in his will with five shillings. No marriage is recorded 
as taking place. Her sisters married into the leading families 
of the region, Sarah uniting with the Goodenows; their son 
Samuel of the third generation was her husband. Hannah 
married Oliver Ward, and Mercy made two marriages, the 
first with Ebenezer Perry and the second with Samuel Streeter. 
They all produced large families. 

John's sons have some fine descendants, among them, 
Charles^, the architect of Watertown, lately deceased ; a Balti- 
more and Shelter Island, N. Y., family and two Southern 
groups having interesting records. 

The eldest son of Samuel-, Samuel, Jr., was one of forty 
men to purchase Grafton of the Indians. His brother Charles 
went there to live, but Samuel remained in Marlboro, held 
all the offices the town afforded, and accumulated a large 
estate, which enriched his five children — his son, Uriah, par- 
ticularly, lived Avithout work, kept open house, and enjoyed 
the life of a gentleman. This procedure resulted, as will be 
seen, in sending Uriah's sons afar in the need to place them- 
selves satisfactorily in life. 

Jedediah, one of the sons of Samuel the tanner, inherited 
the business and handed down the tannery to his son Winslow, 



38 TuE Briguam Family 

thus enlarging and making a permanent foundation for the 
leading industry of the Marlboro and Hudson of to-day. 

Jotham, busy as a surveyor and constable in Marlboro, 
stayed bj' his native place, as did all but two of his children, 
Oliver and Antipas. The former was lost sight of, but the 
line of one of his sons is given in this volume. 

Timothy, a soldier of the colonial wars, with the title of 
colonel, was one of the leaders in the movement to set off 
Southboro from Marlboro, and his house there was opened for 
the first town-meeting. He led a busy life as we see by study- 
ing the Marlboro and Southboro records. He left no children, 
and George Brigham, his nephew, son of SamueP, became 
his heir. 

The ninth child of Captain SamueP Avas Persis, and for 
some reason the records of her family were very imperfectly 
given in the H. B. F. She married Lieutenant Edward Baker, 
one of the leading men of Westboro, and they had a family 
of ten children. Connection with this family has given double 
lines of Brigham descent to several families. Their son, 
Joseph Baker, became known as "Squire" and is thus referred 
to many times by Mr. Parkman in his diary. Persis Brigham 
Baker died in that winter of great snow and prolonged cold 
weather, 1779-1780, mentioned several times in the diary. On 
tlie 12th of February they carried Mr. Parkman, Mrs. Andrews, 
and Mrs. Jonas Brigham, Persis' daughter, in a double sleigh 
to visit Mrs. Baker who was ill. On the 16th two young men 
drew Mr. Parkman on a sled to see the invalid again and the 
end came that evening. On the 19th the "Squire" sent his 
sleigh to carry Mr. Parkman to his house for the "Solemnity." 
Persis was in her 87th year. 



THIRD GENERATION 

GENEALOGY 

7 CAPTAIN NATHAN^ BRIGHAM of Marlboro (1671- 
1746-7), m. (1) Elizabeth, dau. of Jolin^ Maynard, Jr., of Marl- 
boro, and his wife, Mary (Gates) Maynard, b. 2 Apr., 1664 
(not Elizabeth Howe, as reported by H. M. and the Brigham 
Genealogy by Morse), The death notice of Elizabeth, w. of 
Capt. Nathan Brigham, 29 Mar., 1733, records her age as "69 
yrs. lacking 4 days." This makes her birth-date 2 Apr., 1664. 
No Elizabeth Howe of that period in Marlboro was b. on that 
date, according to the records, and the birth of Elizabeth 
Maynard is thus given by H. M. It is also found that the will 
of John Maynard, who d. in 1711, names his dau. Elizabeth 
Brigham. W. I. T. Brigham was in error in giving an Eliza- 
beth Howe, dau. of Isaac and Frances (Woods) Howe, to 
Captain Nathan as his wife. This subject was carefully looked 
into by the late George Sawin Stewart, genealogist, with the 
result as here stated. This is an important matter, as it 
affects the ancestry of a large number of New England people. 
Those persons in the H. B. F, whose ancestry is thus changed 
from Howe to Maynard, are Nos. 22 to 28, 69 to 82, inclusive, 
and their descendants. Nathan m. (2) Mehitable (Gould) 
Eaton. No ch. 

John Maynard, Sr., came to Sudbury, Mass., a widower, 
with a son John, Jr., in 1638-9, when the son was eight years 
old. John, Jr. (1630-1711), ra. 5 Apr., 1658, Mary, dau. of 
Stephen and Ann Gates, at that time living in Lancaster, 
Mass. ; Mary d. in 1682 ; John, Jr., went to Marlboro in 1657 
(H. M.). 

Stephen Gates came in the "Diligent" with a wife and 
two children and was in Hinghara by 1638. They removed to 
Cambridge, Mass., and thence in 1654 to Lancaster, where he 
was constable in 1657; he returned to Cambridge where he d. 
in 1662. His widow, Ann, m. (2) in 1663, Richard Woodward 
of Watertown, outlived him and d. in Stow, Mass., 5 Feb., 1683.

additions : 

iii Mary* Brigham, "no further reported" in Morse and H. B. 
F. is the only Mary in this period unaccounted for. David 
Bruce, probably the son of David and Mary Bruce, b. 20 
Dec, 1700, m. 20 Feb., 1726-27, a Mary Brigham. Jona- 
than's Mary would then be a year younger than this David, 
and it is probable that she is the Mary of this m. Mrs. 
Maud (Brown) Walker, a member of the B. F. A., is a 
descendant of the Bruce-Brigham m. The family belief 
that David was a son of Eoger Bruce, is not borne out by 
the M. V. E. dates. Roger's son, David, was b. in 1711, 
and at the time of the Brigham m. was about 15 yrs. old 
and ten yrs. younger than the only Mary of that period 
who was unm. 

9 DAVID^ BRIGHAM of Westboro, Mass. (1678-1750), 
ni. (1) Deborah How, possibly the dau. of EUizer (Eleazer) 
and Hannah (How) How (see M. V. R.) ; she d. 11 Oct., 1708, 
and a m. (C. R.) occurred 21 Oct., 1709, between David and 
Mary Newton. (The M. V. R. give a m. of Edward Newton 
and ]Mary Lennardson, 23 Dec, 1700, and the death of Edward 
Newton 8 Apr., 1704.) The Rice genealogy calls her Mary 
(Leonard) Newton, a widow ; she d. 1 Dec, 1741 ; David m. 

(3) , who survived him. For the eh. of the first and 

second marriages see p. 87, H. B. F. 

The story of the death of David is graphically told in the 
Diary of the Rev. Ebenezer Parkman, as follows: "June 26, 
1750. When I was preparing to go to bed, came Mr. William 
Rogers and desired me to go to Mr. David Brighams whom 

I found past speaking. He expired while I was there betw.

Mehitable Stimpson of Weston, widow of Jonathan, and dau. 

of Henry and Mehitabel (Bartlett) Spring. Gershom was the 

only one of his name living at this time except his 18-year-old 

son Gershom. Not reported in the Morse genealogy or the

FOURTH GENERATION 

REVIEW 

The eight children of Captain Nathan^, three sons and 
five daughters, settled in or very near Marlboro. When South- 
boro was set off from Marlboro in 1727, the residence of Lieu- 
tenant Nathan was changed to that town, his house being in 
the north part, and there his children of the second marriage 
with Hepsibah (not Elizabeth) Ward, were born. She was a 
\vidow named Snow when she married Nathan, but research 
has failed to give the full name of her first husband. Thomas 
and Ephraim were the Captain's other two sons. Both stayed 
in their native town, the elder settling in the southwest part. 
p]phraim lived on the present "Clover Hill," near where it is 
believed Mercy Brigham and Edmund Rice made their home 
with the Brigham children in the very early days. Ephraim 
had place and position and was rich for his daj', in fact had 
everything but children to inherit his estate, the two that 
came to him dying in infancy. Thomas, on the contrary, had 
five sons to carry the name down, and Lieut. Nathan was 
blessed with six sons. 

Migrations started with James* of Marlboro, son of Jona- 
than. In Brookfield Jonathan^ had invested in a large tract 
of land, a great bargain, it would seem, and thither James 
wended his way to settle. Jesse, his brother, went first to 
Westboro, where he was taken over into the east part of the 
new town of Northboro, which became independent in 1766, 
and there he was prominent. No pioneer, Jesse; he was too 
well fixed with land. Joel, another brother, late in life became 
a citizen of Madison, N. Y. The death of his wife, the urge 
of his sons and the loss of continental money were factors in 
his removal from his native town, where he had long been 
a host to the public at his inn. Jonathan* of this family stayed 
in Marlboro. The first five children of Jonathan^ and Mary 
(Pay) were girls, and there was great rejoicing when this 
Jonathan was born. 

John, son of David^, made his home in Shrewsbury, and 
in later years a grandson took the western trail. John's 



46 The Brigham Family 

brother Levi, the colonel, was born about the time David's 
farm on the shores of the beautiful Lake Naggawoomcon, or 
Chauneey Pond as it is now known, was set off to Westboro. 
The next year saw the advent of Jonas in the family, but 
when grown he was well content to stay in the "Hundredth 
town." Col. Levi was taken into Northboro, and without 
moving "stick or stone," had residence in three towns in his 
lifetime. Asa, going first to Shrewsbury, built a house long 
the pride of antiquarians, but abandoned it to go to Fitz- 
william, N. H., in 1775, where his death occurred two years 
later. New York State and Ohio disclosed in later years fine 
men and women of this stock. See Nos. 38-40. Silas made a 
second marriage with a widow who had an estate derived 
from her first marriage, and he removed to Lancaster, where 
a son David and two daughters were born. The new wife was 
a Prescott, one of those New England families we like to 
read about. 

Gershom's son, Joseph*, No. 42, had the distinction of 
building one of the few Brigham houses in Marlboro which 
had the chance to stand the test of time. It was taken down 
only within recent years. Joseph, who married Comfort Bige- 
low, had a "quiver full" of children, eleven of them, who 
sent the Brigham name down a few generations, through two 
sons, but through six daughters a much larger number of 
descendants accrued. In this house, the fireplace was so ample 
one could climb through its enormous chimney to the roof. 
In this house Capt. Edmund** Brigham married his second wife, 
Elizabeth Bevel. In the course of time the junior Joseph, 
eighth child of this old-fashioned family, came into possession 
of the homestead and remained there with the wife of his 
youth, Lydia Barnes. The H. B. F. is in error in placing his 
residence in Northboro. Very lately it has been discovered 
that on the death of Lydia, he married a second wife, Anna 
Pike, a widow, whose maiden identity is unknown. It was 
through his eldest child, Lydia Brigham, that this place came 
into the hands of the Ames family, through her marriage with 
Moses Ames. This family treasured the collections of their 
ancestors, and the house became a museum of the quaint and 
antique, one which all visiting Brighams found interesting. 
Here lived for her lifetime Martha L. Ames, granddaughter of 



Fourth Generation 47 

Lydia Brigham, an intellectual woman, who had a pleasing 
gift of writing. Of this region in autumn she records : 

"You are right in thinking Glen street valley a beautiful 
place. One sees to-day the pond, with its heavy border of 
maples in varying shades of green, yellow and red ; the brook, 
winding leisurely through close shaven meadows; the minia- 
ture cascade at the 'great gate' ; the woods opposite the house, 
oaks, maples, birches, each with its own rich color, and the 
dark pines, intermingled in just the right proportion; the old 
mill hoary with its life of more than a century ; the other 
buildings in various stages of dilapidation, all combine to form 
a picture never to be forgotten." 

Gershom's son and namesake lived in Westboro; under 
No. 43 in this volume and the first one, interesting sidelights 
are thrown on this family by the Parkman Diary. Another 
son of Gershom, Sergeant Benjamin, inherited the Thomas 
Brigham place in Marlboro, and left it to his youngest son, 
Warren. His other sons, the Rev. Benjamin, Caleb, Benajah 
and Gershom No. 120, went their several ways and left sons 
and daughters. The home-keeping son did not "replenish the 
earth," and lacking descendants, left the place to Benjamin 
Thomas, son of Barnabas; the reason for doing so never has 
been explained; perhaps some matter of business or friend- 
ship, as Barnabas lived on the place. Be that as it may, it was 
out of the direct line of descent, and Benjamin Thomas, who 
was about 17 years old at the time of Warren's death, sold it 
outside the Brigham name. 

The Connecticut family in this period is represented in 
the H. B. F. by the three sons of the Elnathan who emigrated 
there ; Elnathan, whose wife is unknown, Paul and Uriah, Nos. 
45-47. A grandson, Stephen, had an Elisha, Avhose line, not 
reported before, will be found in this volume under Nos. 305a 
and 606a. The names Don Carlos and Don Ferdinand appear 
in this and the next generation. It would be interesting to 
learn how these Spanish titles and names crept into these 
families of direct English descent. Several probabilities can 
be suggested; someone in the family was fond of history or 
romances, or there may have been a sea-captain or sailor in 
the line. The first "Don" occurs under Uriah. 



48 The Brigham Family 

In this generation occurs the error, inherited from Morse, 
which changes the number and the descent of some of the 
families out of John-. There were two Johns, one the son of 
Samuel*, No. 48, and one the son of Thomas^, No. 15. Their 
records were mixed. Thomas's John appears under No. 50, 
married to the girl who was really the wife of the other John, 
and the children under No. 50 do not belong to the John* there 
shown, but to the John", son of Samuel*. The late Mr. George 
S. Stewart, the genealogist, unravelled this snarl, and under 
No. 48, this volume, the explanation is made. Also, the record 
of Sarah, daughter of Samuel*, is corrected. In the fifth and 
sixth generations the correction is also made clear, in this 
volume. Dr. John's grandsons, like their fathers, remained 
in Sudbury, Abijah* keeping the homestead. 

In the SamueP line, Dr. Samuel*, Lieut. Uriah and George, 
Nos. 52-54, all sons of SamueP, remained in Marlboro, except 
George, who was fortunate enough to inherit his uncle Tim- 
othy's farm in Southboro, in addition to the homestead which 
his father left him on Brigham street, Marlboro. He became 
a citizen of Southboro, rather late in life. Ashbel Samuel, 
his son, took the Marlboro place, but sold it to Dr. Daniel 
Brigham, No. 541, H. B. F. Addington M. w^as its late and 
William M. Brigham is its present owner. George needed 
whatever consolation might come from additional prosperity, 
as he met with losses in other ways. Of his seventeen children, 
only six reached adult age. Six died in one year from some 
dreadful epidemic, and two in another year. The mortality 
among infants was something terrible in colonial days, but 
no Brigham family seemed to suffer in this respect as much 
as George Brigham's household. George was the ancestor of 
our lamented Rose Brigham Coxford, No. 799 ; also of the 
President of the Brigham Family Association, Johnson Brig- 
ham, No. 802, now bearing the honorary title of Litt. D. ; also 
of Albert Perry Brigham, No. 804, of Colgate University, who 
recently received the honorary degree of D. L., this being the 
third time he has been honored with a degree for his scholarly 
attainments ; also of families in the 11. B. F. from 638 to 646 in- 
clusive. The quality of these Brighams out of George is such 
that we regret more of that family were not saved to benefit 
the world. A curious error was brought down from Morse, 



Fourth Generation 49 

repeated in the H. B. F. and corrected in this volume. Dr. 
Samuel, No. 52, was said to have married a lady who proved 
to be the mother of a large family, some of them born before 
our Dr. Samuel saw the light. Undoubtedly, she did marry 
his father, when she was a widow. Dr. Samuel's third daugh- 
ter's line has been unearthed in the West, and we are happy 
to place it under the doctor's name. 

Francis of Jedediah^ and SamueP went to New Marlboro 
among the first arrivals in that town. Princeton drew his 
brother Stephen and he was one of her earliest planters. We 
strongly suspect that he made a second marriage which has 
been concealed from the world of our day, but perhaps not 
of his. See No. 59 this vol. Solomon stayed in Marlboro, 
as did Winslow, who, with something of the spirit of old Dr. 
John, was in and out of everything that concerned town or 
State, besides keeping the tannery a going concern for the 
benefit of many of the present day. 

Jotham's sons, Abraham and Asa, remained in Marlboro, 
but Antipas, as if the winters in Massachusetts were not cold 
enough in the old days, went north as far as St. Albans. 
Cheaper land and soldiers' bounties in the form of land were 
probably the inducements that led our people into the north- 
ern and other wilds. Some of the town histories give realistic 
pictures of the hardships these northern frontiersmen under- 
went. Antipas had no sons. 

A type of the race was William Brigham of Grafton, a 
grandson of SamueP. Tall and muscular, one of his pastimes 
was to jump over five and six-foot fences without touching 
hand or foot. He lived to Avithin six years of the century 
mark, in quietude and contentment on "Brigham Hill" in Graf- 
ton. He scorned public office but he had a grandson of the 
sixth generation who made up for his ancestor's deficiencies 
in this respect, William of Boston, No. 410, and a granddaugh- 
ter of the house of this day is said not to be averse to office 
and is also deeply interested in Holstein cattle on this same old 
Grafton farm. 

The year 1761 in Marlboro was a remarkable one for 
weather. March 19 there was an earthquake; September 30, 
dandelions were in bloom; October 23, a tremendous wind 
occurred; November 1, there was a second earthquake. 



FOURTH GENERATION 

GENEALOGY 

22 LIEUT. NATHAN* BRIGHAM, son of Nathan" and 
Elizabeth (Maynard, not Howe) of Southboro (1693-1784). 
Inquiry has been made about Nathan's second wife. Morse 
calls her a widow, Elizabeth (Ward) Snow, and gives the date 
of her m. to Nathan as "about 1729." The H. M. calls her 
Elizabeth Snow. Her name is changed in this volume from 
Elizabeth, as given in the H. B. F., to Hepsibah because of the 
death notice in the S. V. R., viz. : "Hepsibah, w. of Nathan, 
Nov. 15, 1748" ; also because their ch. are all recorded under 
"Nathan and Hepsibah." S. V. R. In a search for her family 
the M. V. R. throw a little light upon the subject. William, 
Jr., and Jane Ward have a dau. recorded as "Hepsibah" b. 
"Dec. 30, 1708." It seems probable that these were her parents. 
She would have been about twenty-one at the time of her 
second m. and Morse says she had a dau. by her first m. Nos.

there, and also in the M. V. R. between 1746-1748, two 
being twins and dying in a few weeks. The two recorded 
in the H. B. F. are evidently the ch. of John Eager 's first

39 CAPT. JONAS* BRIGHAM of Westboro (1718-1789). 
His wife was Persis, the dau. of Edward and Persis (Brigham) 
Baker, who was the dau. of Samuel- Brigham, b. 1 Nov., 1726, 
and d. 3 Nov., 1784. It should be noted that this m. gives the 
descendants of Jonas and Persis a line of descent from SamueP 
Brigham, youngest son of Thomas^ as well as from Thomas^ 
Brigham, the eldest son. Ch., correction : 

iii The H. B. F. inserts the name of Hannah in the list of children 
that belong to Jonas and Persis Brigham. No such ch. is 
recorded in that family in the W. V. E., nor any m. of 
Hannah Brigham and Holloway Fish. It is known that 
Holloway Fish m. Hannah Harrington. We therefore de- 
lete the record of a Hannah under this number. Lucy 
Harrington, sister of Hannah, m. David Brigham, No. 108. 
They had a son Holloway (see No. 268), and Holloway Fish 
is said to have adopted him. 

40 MAJOR ASA* BRIGHAM of Shrewsbury (1721- 
1777). After his removal to Fitzwilliam, N. H., as stated in 
the H. B. F., an old New Hampshire record shows that the 
N. H. Legislature voted that Asa Brigham be Second Major 
in Col. Enoch Hale's regiment, the date of the appointment 
being 2 Nov., 1775. 

42 JOSEPH* BRIGHAM of Marlboro (1706-1786) and 
his 1st wife, Comfort (Bigelow) (1707-1755), lived in the

who probably belongs between Otis and Charles.) 

43 GERSHOM* BRIGHAM of Westboro (1712-?); his 
1st wife, Mary (Lee), d. 5 Sept., 1780. The W. V. R. state 
that Gershom Brigham and Bulah Bellows were m. 16 Sept., 
1782, a C. R. not entered in either of the Brigham genealogies. 
Ch., Ist. m., additions: 

i Hepsibahs Brigham, b. 20 Jan., 1741-42, and no further re- 
ported in the H. B. F. No other ch. is recorded anywhere 
as being b. until 1747. Yet, the following from the Diary 
of the Rev. Ebenezer Parkman indicates that in 1745 there 
were 2 ch. in the family: "21 Oct., 1745. Visited ♦ • ♦

the * * * (Distemper) and has buryed one Child whilst 
I was absent. Mrs. Brigham and yr remaining Child now

FIFTH GENERATION 

REVIEW 

Two figures attract attention in the "History of the Brig- 
hain Family"- as we reach this period — Judge Elijah Brigham 
of Westboro and Lieut. Gov. Paul Brigham of Vermont. 

To the Rev. Ebenezer Parkman of Westboro, anti- 
quarians, genealogists and all lovers of realistic pictures of 
colonial homes and days owe a large debt. His vivid portrayal 
of the men and women living in that obscure village in Massa- 
chusetts is so true to life that it may readily be regarded as 
representative of the "days and ways" of all rural New Eng- 
land. As Howells expresses it of another writer, he had "the 
secret of closely adding detail to detail in a triumph of * * * 
'Littleism' but which seems to be nature's way of achieving 
'Largeism.' " In this story of the people of his parish, Mr. 
Parkman touches the early life of Elijah Brigham here and 
there, often in a way to tantalize the seeker for details of the 
life of a youth of promise. We see the young man visiting the 
parsonage with his chums. Singing is the only pastime men- 
tioned, but Elijah was courting a daughter of the house, and 
he doubtless found even the old psalms invested with a charm 
such as youth and love can throw about anything. None of 
these too brief glimpses suggest attainments such as would 
lead to the high positions he later occupied. He served his 
town as selectman three times; twice he Avas a representative 
to the General Court and he was a member of the Senate for 
twelve years. He covered a period of sixteen years as Judge 
of the Court of Common Pleas for Worcester County. By 1810 
he was elected to Congress and spent much of his time there- 
after, until his death, in Washington, D. C. A tribute to his 
character by the Rev. Abner Morse is quoted on page 152 of 
"The History of the Brigham Family." 

Elijah's sister, Susanna Brigham, married Breck Parkman, 
son of the minister, and from their seven children have de- 
scended some of the leading families of eastern Massachusetts. 
The foot-notes under Nos. 100 and 106 of the H. B. F. are in- 
teresting examples of the diary. 



58 The Brigham Family 

Lieut. -Gov. Paul Brigham had a military career in the 
Continental army, entering it as captain in 1777, serving four 
years, and taking part in the battles of Germantown, Fort 
MifBin and Monmouth, and wintering in Valley Forge in that 
fearful year, 1777-78. Until after the war he was of Coventry, 
Conn., being a grandson of that Elnathan who in the third 
generation removed to Mansfield in that State. In 1782 Paul 
became a citizen of Norwich, Vt., and thenceforth he led a 
busy life. The offices he held, such as town clerk, high sheriff. 
Judge of County Court, Brigadier-General of the Third Brig- 
ade, one of the State Land Commissioners, a legislative mem- 
ber and Major-General of the Fourth Division of Militia, may 
be regarded as an admirable preparation for a twenty-year 
period as Lieut. -Governor of Vermont. 

The army under Gen. Washington was well filled with 
Brighams of the fifth generation. In Appendix B of the H. B. 
F. will be found as complete a list of the men who served their 
country as it was possible to make. We often think we should 
like to have been in Westboro on the 19th of April, 1775, when, 
probably about two or three o'clock in the morning of that 
lovely spring day, the peach trees sending out their beauty 
and the fragrance of their blossoms, some of the sons of the 
town started on the long journey to Concord and Lexington, 
led by Capt. Edmund Brigham, No. 73, whose eldest son 
marched behind his father; Captain William Brigham, No. 74, 
brother of Edmund, was at the head of another company of 
Minute Men, with Ithamar Brigham, No. 81, one of his Lieu- 
tenants ; also Elijah Brigham, No. 76, in another company as 
Lieutenant. They all arrived too late to be in the forefront 
of the battle, but there was much serious work for them to do, 
and they performed it Avell. Among others who marched on 
the Alarm was Timothy, No. 84, afterwards a colonel, and 
Artemas, who became a sergeant and later a lieutenant; also 
Captain Paul, No. 82, who marched as 2d lieutenant. There 
were four companies and 196 men who marched from Marlboro 
on that portentous morning to answer the call sent out " to 
every Middlesex village and farm." 

The second Nathan's son Moses was a Westboro citizen 
with an interesting old house described in the H. B. F. Wil- 
liam and his wife died of the small-pox and their place of 



Fifth Generation 59 

burial became the Brighara Cemetery of Marlboro. Nathan, 
the Indian fighter, has descendants of the present day in only 
one family, that of his granddaughter, who married Lincoln 
Brigham of Westboro. Ebenezer seems like a pathetic figure, 
dying early at 24 leaving a little daughter. Elijah was a very 
prominent citizen of Southboro, having a 30-year period as 
selectman; a representative to the General Court, and in the 
Revolution had service as one of the Minute Men who went to 
Concord and Lexington. He has a notable line of descendants 
from his thirteen children, twelve of whom lived to adult age. 
Two of his daughters married Brighams, and from his son and 
grandson, Elijahs both, descended Dr. Edwin Howard Brigham, 
so many years the librarian of the Massachusetts Medical Socie- 
ty, recently deceased at an advanced age. A grandson was 
the late Judge Lincoln Brigham, and others were merchants 
in Boston, Joseph Lincoln and Erastus Forbes Brigham. Ed- 
mund, whose interesting will is given in the H. B. F., has been 
already mentioned. His large family has many descendants 
noted further on. Hepsibah, who married John Taplin, and 
her dozen children were pioneers to Vermont from Southboro. 
New material concerning them will be found in this volume. 
She had several sons in the Revolution. 

Thomas*, of the first Nathan line, had five sons whose 
good-sized families add considerably to the genealogical story 
of this and the succeeding periods. His son Aaron had the 
second largest family on record, that of 16 children. These 
very large families do not have as many descendants in the 
later generations as many of the smaller. Much new material 
of interest may be found in this volume of Ezekiel's family, 
through whose missionary descendant we probably owe the 
fact that an Indian assumed the name of Brigham. His grand- 
son, named Hall, worked with a tribe of Indians, translating 
the Bible, being very friendly with the Chief. See No. 79, viii. 
Captain Paul had much service in the Revolution, and left 
many descendants. Noah's family, No. 83, has little more than 
mere genealogical interest in the next generation. Searching 
through some old papers, an old receipt was found in which 
Abraham Brigham acknowledges the receipt of three hundred 
pounds, nineteen shillings and ninepence, from Uriah Brigham, 
"in full of all demands against him as my 'gardian' till I was

twenty-one years of age." Dated May 27th, 1793, and attested 
by Abner Brigham. These are probably the two youngest sons 
of Ithamar, No. 81, the father having died in 1784, when this 
boy was about thirteen years of age. 

A sad case of the ruin brought to many well-to-do men by 
the depreciation of Continental money, is that of Col. Timothy 
Brigham, No. 84. His brother, Lieut. Artemas, went to North- 
boro, and six of his sons left descendants in that town and 
elsewhere, as shown in the H. B. F. 

The sons of Joel*, particularly William, Jonathan, John 
and Samuel, Nos. 87 to 91, raised large families in various 
parts of New York State and helped to people Ohio and other 
western states. We shall meet a number of them in the next 
and following periods. 

The Brookfield Brighams, Nos. 92-94, gave a good account 
of themselves in this series of years, and we are fortunate in 
the next generation to have additional records. Capt. Tilly 
inherited over 300 acres of James*'s land and lived and died 
in Brookfield bringing up a family of eight children. The old 
house, pictured in Volume 1, does not look any too large to 
accommodate this good -sized family. Out of all this family, 
we have been able to trace down to this day, but few of the 
name. See 229, xi, and 509, this volume. Elisha received the 
same amount of land and his eldest son, James, went to Ver- 
mont, and we find later on his descendants in New York State. 
Interesting additions to the records of his son Sylvanus will 
be found in this volume. The remaining land which James* 
left in Brookfield, went to Jonathan, but his seven children's 
records are meagre, and the male line of Lot, if any, has not 
been found. Silas and Elisha did not marry and William's 
son died. 

The Shrewsbury line of David^ produced some excellent 
people, and among them that Ebenezer who was so highly 
regarded in the West. John, David's brother, went to Phillips- 
ton in the northern part of the State, a little old hamlet still 
existing, but none of his children remained there (we can't 
blame them), and his son, Dr. Samuel, founded quite a family 
in the West. See 232 and 513, H. B. F. 

Emigration took place to Fitzwilliam, N. H., by Levi, No. 
98, son of Col. Levi of Northboro and two or three other places 



Fifth Generation 61

(the colonel traveled a great deal while remaining in his own 
house), and brother of Judge Elijah. This region, under the 
shadow of Mt. Monadnock, drew many Brighams for no reason 
it is now possible to understand, unless it was for the scenery. 
Levi left sturdy descendants of his two sons and seven daugh- 
ters, and many remained in New Hampshire, and others made 
homes in Wisconsin and further west. 

Asa, of Shrewsbury, whose gabled roof house was stand- 
ing there in 1894, with its immense fireplace in the center of 
the house, was already in Pitzwilliam with his sons, Leonard, 
Stephen and Josiah, Nos. 112-114, who moved on, two into 
New York State and one, Leonard, to Vermont. Stephen did 
not go farther than Vernon and Whitestown, N. Y., but 
through his son Sullivan, whose son Mavor went to Toledo, 
brought into our family of Brighams, the beloved president 
of the Brigham Family Association, Charles 0., and the inter- 
esting Toledo family, his brothers and sisters. See this volume, 
in the next generations. 

David Brigham's descendants have been noted not only 
for numbers but also for qualitj'. Capt. Jonas*, No. 39, brother 
of Col. Levi, sent out into the world men and women whose 
progeny have been of the exceedingly worthwhile sort of 
people. His namesake and eldest son, Capt. Jonas'*, No. 103, 
went to faraway Bakersfield, by way of Brookfield ; in the 
latter place he stayed long enough to make a good record in the 
War of the Revolution, and then took a leading part in the 
affairs of Bakersfield, whence for seventeen consecutive years 
he went to the legislature. It was asserted in the H. B. F. that 
he married a second time, the lady being called Polly Wymau. 
This marriage should rightly be attributed to his distant 
cousin, Jonas^ of Sudbury and Dublin, N. H., No. 136. Capt. 
Jonas'*, it has been lately learned, married Mrs. Abigail Smith 
of Phillipston. Jonas was the ancestor of our former Presi- 
dent of the Brigham Family Association, now one of the editors 
of the Boston Evening Transcript, and Washington Corre- 
spondent of that paper from 1907 to 1925 ; also of Robert B. 
and Elizabeth F. Brigham, whose magnificent hospital for 
incurables stands on Parker Hill in Boston. Interesting dis- 
coveries have been made through western correspondence, in 
the line of Edward, another son of this family, No. 104, whose 



62 The Brigham Family 

marriage to Sally Miller is noted in the Parkman Diary, and 
who went to Milton, Vermont, where he had five sons born to 
him, grandsons of Jonas. An excellent branch of the family 
comes down through Edward, Jr., Nos. 259, 540, and lastly, 
540a, the only daughter of the house, whose record was left 
out in the H. B. F. Antipas, No. 106, whose first marriage is 
so vividly described in the foot-notes on page 157 of the first 
volume, had two more marriages to his credit. None of his 
nine children have been traced, save Nelly, whose grandson 
was unexpectedly met with in the city of Seattle, years ago. 
Antipas went to St. Albans, but died in New York State. A 
family in Rochester have an ancestor of that name, but we do 
not know enough of the line to enable us to place them surely. 
Barnabas of this family went to North Brookfield, David and 
Joseph remained in Westboro, and Dr. Daniel, who has been 
mentioned as buying the SamueP farm, titles to which have 
always been from Brigham to Brigham, kept to the high mark 
of the race by being the leading surgeon of his day. 

Dr. Gershom No. 120, son of Gershom*, and his wife, Esther 
Belknap, had a family of eight children, whose records are 
given more fully in our new book than in H. B. F. Herbert 
0. and Clarence S. Brigham, leading librarians of Providence 
and Worcester, are descendants. Dr. Gershom appears to have 
done a good deal of traveling between Westboro and Fitz- 
william, practising in each town. A second marriage of the 
doctor to Mrs. Sarah Bush of Bolton was arranged, as inten- 
tions were published 1 January, 1803, and the marriage oc- 
curred February 15th of that year. 

Our first Harvard graduate, the Rev. Benjamin Brigham, 
No. 121, born on the Thomas^ farm in Marlboro, was drawn by 
the lure of Fitzwilliam, and there he lived, labored and died. 
His brother, Gershom, No. 125, went to Fayston, Vt., by way 
of Winchester, N. H., and now, w'ith his wife, Sarah Allen, he 
rests in the hill cemetery overlooking the home of their last 
years. Out of this line came Willard I. T. Brigham, our gen- 
ealogist. Caleb, No. 122, another brother, had a son David", 
trace of whom was lost. The line has been discovered and 
will be found well worth attention. Benajah, No. 123, has 
descendants in or around Boston, as well as elsewhere, whose 
careers are honorable. 



Fifth Generation 63 



The Connecticut lines produced many men of affairs, as 
we have seen in the case of Gov. Paul. Stephen, No. 126, had 
a rather imperfect record in the H. B. F., but we have found 
a family of descendants of interest, under 305a and 60;3a. 

The progeny of John^ did little roving, staying in or near 
their home town or State, and the call of the West did not 
affect any of the next period, but we find two Southern 
branches further on. 

An interesting man was Dr. Samuel of the SamueP line. 
No. 144. Incapacitated from practising his profession, through 
an accident, he found compensations in the composition of 
music, in writing essaj's and verses, and he was a magistrate. 
Through his seven daughters, many Western families can claim 
Brighara blood. He had no male issue. 

Bakersfield, Vt., is an interesting place to our family, as 
two of its sons went forth destined to acquire fortunes which 
are now being used to relieve physical suffering. (See Ap- 
pendix E, H. B. F.) 

Uriah, Sr., of Marlboro, "had lived while he lived" with 
but little thought for those who would come after him. Con- 
sequently, there was not much to share among his eleven 
children, a*nd his sons, having to work out the future, each for 
himself, went in different directions. Henry^ went to Barre, 
where he founded a long and interesting line of Brighams; 
Edward to Petersham, and we notice among his descendants, 
two physicians and one philanthropist, Franklin Brigham Fay, 
Secretary for many years of the Society for the Prevention 
of Cruelty to Children ; John Gott remained in Marlboro and 
enterprising business men are of his stock; Uriah Jr., No. 
147, father of Peter Bent^ Brigham, No. 343, who amassed one 
of the fortunes spoken of, took a most serious journey from 
Marlboro to Bakersfield, Vt., in an ox-team with his wife, 
Elizabeth (Fay), about the year 1796. Presumably the cow 
traveled alongside, as was the case with some Tyler pioneers 
who went to Pennsylvania. They had with them three, per- 
haps four, children. Peter was not born for another decade, 
but came to Boston as a young man to perform his mission to 
the world. When the rest of us are dust and forgotten, the 
two hospitals founded by Peter Bent and his nephew, Robert 
Breck, born in Bakersfield, will be assisting the weak and help-

less men and women toward health or easing their passage to 
another realm. Another son of Uriah, Sr., John Gott Brigham, 
had been in the Revolutionary army, which perhaps accounted 
for a curious fashion in his appearance at church. He always 
entered with a long whip carried over his shoulder as he 
marched with military bearing the whole length of the church 
to the farthest pew in the gallery, where with great care he 
deposited the whip and his hat. At the end of the sermon he 
left the church in the same way. It must have been a sight! 

One of the Abrahams, either No. 62 or 81, used to come 
to church on horseback, as did Warren Brigham and Caleb, 
No. 122, who invariably wore knee buckles. 

The churches in the old days were unheated, and small 
foot-stoves were carried by the women, or thoroughly heated 
bricks. It is no wonder that consumption became a New Eng- 
land disease, for the services were not short and the chill of the 
meeting-house was great. 

Phineas^ No. 149, son of George*, one of the six out 
of seventeen children who survived the epidemics of his child- 
hood, went into that paradise for Brighams, New York State, 
whence we find his offspring of the next few generations ven- 
turing into Pennsylvania, Illinois, Iowa, Oklahoma and Cali- 
fornia. Among them is the President of the Brigham Family 
Association, Dr. Johnson Brigham of Des Moines, son of 
another Phineas, No. 640. 

John^ No. 155, of that Francis* who ventured as far as 
New Marlboro when the wilderness lay between the mother 
town and her child, took up the line of march into New York 
State, and he has to his credit among his sons, one clergyman 
and one eminent doctor, of whom more in another section, with 
some excellent business men farther down. 

The Princeton family scattered around through New 
Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Ohio, Michigan and Minne- 
sota, but kept a firm hold on the family place in Princeton for 
seventy years and more. 

The nine sons and daughters of Winslow* kept up the 
family tradition of many children, and at the same time fos- 
tered the leather industry through the business acumen of the 
brothers Capt. DanieP, Capt. Aaron and Major Jedediah. 



Fifth Generation 65 



Artemas went to Bridgton, Me., but one of his sons, James 
Madison", returned to Massachusetts, and his son, William D., 
lives in Dorchester, a deacon in the Second Church there, its 
building known as the old Codman Meeting-house. He is also 
a worker in present day reforms. 

The daughter of Fortunatus^ No. 168, Nancy, did an ex- 
cellent thing for the Brigham family when she married Joel' 
Brigham, No. 480, for from them come the present day North- 
boro Brighams, through Ira, Abraham, John and Samuel, Nos. 
742-745, who have double lines of Brigham heritage ; also some 
of the Warren family, from Phebe Brigham, daughter of 
Nancy and Joel, who have more Brigham blood than many 
who bear the name. See this volume, 742a. 

Jotham, No. 170, remained in Marlboro, where his daugh- 
ter Lucy married Edward Barnes, and there were three doctors 
among their eight children. Dr. Edward, born in 1809, though 
he did not bear the Brigham name, displayed the traits of 
our best men. He married Ashbel Brigham's daughter, Maria 
E., and was a physician of unusual training for those days, 
the early 19th century, taking the medical course at Harvard 
College and completing his studies in Paris, by 1846. He 
succeeded Dr. Baker (whose daughter married William Pitt 
Brigham) as the principal physician of Marlboro, where Dr. 
Barnes was greatly appreciated until his death in 1878. North- 
boro was the scene of the life-work of another brother, Dr. 
Henry, and Wayland was the home of Dr. Charles W. Barnes. 

When SamueP and Nathan^ were concerned in the pur- 
chase of the land from the Indians in Grafton, they acquired 
much property. Some of it can be traced in the family to the 
present day. The homestead on "Brigham Hill" in that town 
is still occupied by descendants of William, No. 410. When 
you have time, look at the children under Capt. Charles Brig- 
ham, No. 171, and follow them down, in both books, and see 
the type of Brighams in this case which descended from the 
youngest son of Thomas the Puritan.

ing : "I went to see poor Mr. Moses Brigham who is very bad 
with his cough, and prayed with him as well as spent time 
with him in discourse to quicken and forward him in his 
preparation. He asks me to preach there at some convenient

Mehitable (Grout), who survived him nearly 26 years. They 
had 7 ch. See H. B. F.

71 CAPT. NATHAN** BRIGHAM of Southboro (1730-1- 
1806), was the son of Lieut. Nathan* and Hepsibah (not Eliza- 
beth) (Ward) Brigham. 

72 HEPSIBAIP (BRIGHAM) TAPLIN (1732-1815), 
was the dau. of Lieut. Nathan* and Hepsibah (not Elizabeth) 
(Ward) Brigham, and the wife of Col. John (1726-1803). Col. 
Taplin is said by one of their descendants, Dr. C. W. Drew 
of Minneapolis, to have served only in the French and Indian 
War in 1755 and 1756, and did not serve in the Revolutionary 
war, but like many others went to Canada. This is in direct 
contradiction of the H. B. F. story. Five of his sons served 
at various times in that war. The record in H. B. F. that 
Hepsibah's children were born in Corinth is incorrect. They 
resided in or about IMarlboro until 1764, when they Avent to 
Newbury, Vt., and to Corinth about 1780. Some of the items 
given below are from "Thirty Dunstable Families," by Ezra 
Stearns, with notes from S. Harrison Lovewell of Arlington,

Aaron Hall (No. 79, viii), was appointed guardian of the 
minor son, Thomas, of Abner Brigham, "Late deceased." 
This points to the period of Abner 's death and gives the 
name of one of Abner 's sons, hitherto unknown. An un- 
traced Martha Brigham of Hartland, Vt., would be of the 
right age to be one of the children of Abner, as she was b. 
in 1781. 



ii Marthas (Brigham) Leland, wife of Benjamin, d. in Grafton, 
11 Feb., 1822. 

vi Miriam (Brigham) Gallop, wife of Joseph, had children living

living in 1848. In 1832 she was living in Grafton in failing 
health. 

viii Sarah (Brigham) Hall, wife of Aaron, d. 27 Nov., 1835, and 
passed down to her descendants a pewter service, a wooden 
snuff box and her gold beads. The beads were given to 
the oldest daughter in each generation. Facts regarding 
this family were gleaned from a large number of letters 
written by Oliver M. Brigham (205, v) and Diademia 
(205, vii), and others in the family. The date of death of 
Diademia is not known, but her last letter was written in 
1884, when she was ae. 83. Ch. (Hall): 1 Aaron', Jr., b.

m. Betsey Parker; was a graduate of Dartmouth College 
and Andover Theological Seminary; a lifelong missionary 
to the Indians; translated part of the Bible into the Ojib- 
way language, and for that purpose made it a written 
language. The Indian minister who assumed the name of 
Brigham (see Persons Who Have Assumed the Name of 
Brigham) was of the Ojibway tribe of Indians, and it is 
possible that Brighams connected with Sherman Hall con- 
tributed toward his work and made the name of Brigham 
familiar to these Indians; 3 Sarah Brigham, b. 31 July, 
1805, d. 14 Sept., 1829 m. William Haskell; 4 Lydia, b. 
12 June, 1807, d. 8 Feb., 1880, m. Daniel Burbank." All of

103 CAPT. JONAS-' BRIGHAM of North Brookfield, 
Mass., and Bakersfield, Vt. (1748-1 Dec, 1826). The statement 
in H. B. F. that he m. (2) Polly Wyman, 10 Nov., 1810, is an 
error. The Phillipston V. R. give the m. on 23 Jan., 1804, of 
Jonas Brigham of Bakersfield and Mrs. Abigail Smith. The 
inscriptions on the stones in Bakersfield cemetery read: 
"Annah (his first wife, see H. B. F.) d. 14 Oct., 1802, ae. 53; 
Abigail (2d wife) d. 16 July, 1840, ae. 76." He had 10 ch. by 
1st m. See H. B. F. The first wife of Jonas of Sudbury was 
Polly Wyman.

have been traced, except Nelly*', their third child, who is 
believed to have married a man named Cone, and her grand- 
son, William Brigham® Gone, lived, a few years ago, in Seattle, 
Wash. He was apparently named for Nelly's next older 
brother. See foot-notes p. 157, H. B. F.

110 ALPHEUS' BRIGHAM of Shrewsbury and Jaffrey, 
N. H. (1746-about 1826) and his wife, Lydia (Green) had a 
family of six children. The third, fourth and fifth sons went 
West. See Nos. 110, 269 and 270, H. B. F. The second son : 

ii Wright Brigham, has been no further reported. Recently a 
letter from Miss Martha E. Pond, Librarian of Manitowac, 
i"-* ' Wis., opens up ah interesting query. She states that a 

Wright Brigham lived in Smithfield, N. Y., Madison Co., 
where he is listed in the records as a pioneer. He had two 
sons, at least, viz: Philander Brigham and Melancthon 
Asaph Brigham. Philander remained in New York State, 
and some of his descendants live in the vicinity of Smith- 
field, among them Frank Gill of Morrisville, N. Y. Melanc- 
thon Asaph Brigham 's Bible is in the possession of a 
descendant in Wisconsin, showing he was b. in Smithfield 
13 Sept., 1804. If our Wright was his father, he was 36 
yrs. old when the boy was born. Melancthon m. 8 Mar., 
1827, Sarah Grey, b. in Pelham, Mass., June, 1804. In the 
period of the '40s or '508 they went to Wisconsin, Melanc- 
thon dying soon after. Their ch. are: 1 Celestia Brigham, 
m. Norton McShooler; 2 Henry Brigham, m. Martha More-' 
house; 3 Grace Brigham, m. Charles Bliss; 4 Watkins 
Brigham, m. Libby Haskins; 5 Elizabeth Brigham, m. 
Samuel Marston, from whom Miss Pond descends; 6 Sarah 
Brigham, m. Edwin Peck. The fact that this Wright Brig- 
ham named a son Asaph, our Wright having an elder 
brother of that name, is a clue that genealogists like to 
find; the fact that three of our Wright's brothers went 
West to New York State makes it probable that he too 
took up the trail with or after them. If any of the sons 
had remained in the East the tragic fate of their mother 
would have been impossible. See H. B. F., No. 110.

SIXTH GENERATION 

REVIEW 

Let it not be forgotten that the sixth generation as shown 
in "The History of the Brigham Family" is larger than all in 
the Morse Genealogy, and the seventh generation is nearly 
as large as the sixth. 

The Forbes family of Westboro was united with the Brig- 
hams through the marriage of Sarah, daughter of Moses' Brig- 
ham of Westboro, to Jonathan Forbes. The young couple 
acquired the Moses Brigham house on West Main street, a 
description of which, taken from the "Hundredth Town" is 
given on page 129 of the H. B. F. There they raised a family 
of nine children, who in their turn contributed several large 
families to the community. One of Sarah's great-grandchil- 
dren is Judge William T. Forbes of Worcester, who married 
Miss Harriette Merrifield, No. 414, v, a daughter of a Brigham 
woman of Grafton. 

Moses, Jr., a brother of Sarah, graduating in the same 
class with Elijah, afterward the judge, tried business without 
success in Concord, Vt., and Hanover, N. H., and then went 
to Canada, where he went into land speculation. 

Two other members of the family of Moses^ remained in 
Westboro, Phineas and Mehitabel, but Ebenezer was early in 
Townshend, Vt., \vhere his son, John Hazeltine, and grandson, 
Bela Brewster, were prominent. Joseph was graduated from 
Harvard and Dartmouth Colleges, was a lawyer in Marlboro, 
and after the War of 1812 went to Canada, and at his death 
was buried by the side of his brother IMoses in Delaware, near 
London. Sally Clarinda, his third daughter, married John 
Cotting of IMarlboro, the landlord of Cotting tavern. 

The old sleighing parties in the farm-wagon body on run- 
ners, drawn by two or more horses, were popular amusements 
in a region where snow lingered for three months or more in 
the year. Seated on straw in the bottom of the wagon, young 
men and women made the "welkin ring" with the songs of the 
olden time. Always they went to a tavern, such as were com- 
mon along the traveled highways. The John Cotting tavern, 



82 The Brigham Family 



presided over by a housewife born a Brigham, was in the 
highest repute. The dinners and suppers prepared by this 
skillful lady, Aunt Sally, as she was called, were known far 
and wide. "Flip" was a beverage much called for. It was 
cream beer, served in large mugs, into which the landlord ran 
an iron rod about two feet long with a ball at the end the size 
of a walnut, which was heated red hot. This made the beer 
foam and was a very acceptable drink after a cold ride. Then 
came the fiddler's opportunity, who played "Money Musk," 
"Turkey in the Straw," and many other popular dance tunes, 
which Henry Ford is now seeking to reinstate in the good 
graces of dancers to-day. The Longfellow Wayside Inn, Sud- 
bury, now owned by him, was a favorite rendezvous for 
sleighing parties from Marlboro, and was then known as the 
"Red Horse Tavern." 

The old Williams Tavern, now somewhat fallen from its 
once high estate, comes into the story of the sixth generation. 
Elizabeth'^ Brigham, daughter of Capt. Daniel, No. 162, mar- 
ried Abraham Gates, and for a few years was the hostess of 
the tavern which boasted of having entertained President 
George Washington and the Duke de la Rochefoucauld. This 
site, on the "Post Road" from Boston to Worcester, has been 
occupied by a tavern for 250 years. Harriet Brigham, a sister 
of Mrs. Gates, was the next hostess, as the wife of Jabez With- 
erbee, and they had a family of nine children. In those days 
Williams Tavern ranked among the very best of public houses 
in Massachusetts. The old parlor table, from which President 
Washington dined at the tavern, is preserved, and the Masonic 
bowl, pitcher and mug used there. When the stage driver 
reached Felton Hill, on the opposite side of Williams Pond, he 
blew his horn, and this tooting gave the inn-keeper notice of the 
approach of passengers and their number. A descendant of 
Mrs. Harriet Witherbee is Mrs. Ella Frances (Witherbee), 
wife of Arthur W. Furlong of Somerville, Mass. 

Col. Ephraim", of Marlboro, left a large family of sixteen 
children, all of whom reached adult age, and several had large 
families. One of his sons was a clergyman, said to have been 
"the father of Methodism in Worcester and Fitchburg." A 
descendant, in the ninth generation, Nathaniel Maynard Brig- 
ham, was a noted tenor singer, first in the Glee Club of Harvard 



Sixth Generation 83 



College from which he was graduated, and later in all parts of 
the country. He had a voice of rare beauty. 

One hundred and ten or fifteen years ago, cotillion 
dances were held in Marlboro every Thursday night for years. 
Cotting's Hall was the scene of much pleasure in those days, 
and the master of ceremonies was Caleb" Brigham, No. 293. 
His wife, Martha, was a daughter of William Brigham, No. 74. 
Caleb was a portly man, with a fine presence, a clear resonant 
voice and perfect manners. His standing in the community 
was unquestioned. Nearly all of Marlboro of his day (1778- 
1842) who learned to dance were pupils of Mr. Brigham, and 
they learned at the same time courtesy and refinement, from 
the celebrated violin player and dancing master. 

Sophia Rice was the daughter of Lucy Brigham and Eli 
Rice. Lucy°, No. 167, the daughter of Winslow* Brigham, was 
the first woman school teacher employed by the town of Marl- 
boro. Sophia®, who married Dennis Witherbee, was full of 
vivacity at the age of 80, when she danced a minuet, to the 
accompaniment of an ancient spinnet, with her niece. This 
sprightly lady, speaking of the great number of Brighams in 
Marlboro, said : "My mother was a Brigham, two of my 
brothers married Brighams ; father's only sister married a 
Brigham ; my husband's mother was a Brigham ; two of her 
sisters married Brighams ; three of her sons married Brighams, 
but my name was Rice." An unprejudiced listener would 
certainly have concluded it was marvelous that anyone in 
Marlboro escaped being a Brigham. 

Ithamar Brigham, Jr., No. 208, settled on laud in the west 
part of Marlboro purchased of his father-in-law Solomon 
Barnes, whose daughter Catharine he married. Ithamar built 
a substantial house near the present ]\Iaplewood Cemetery, 
which in later years was laid out on part of this farm. Their 
son Levi was a physician and Joseph (his son) was a Boston 
merchant. But Moses, the third son, was the favorite of his 
childless uncle Silas and his wife Persis (Stowe). Having no 
children to bring up, many precious possessions were acquired 
in one way or another, and Aunt Persis had no equal with her 
needle. Therefore, Moses inherited a store of treasures, which 
he as well as his wife, Susan (Fosgate), fully appreciated. 
Among the heirlooms was the grandfather clock, pewter plates, 



84 The Brigham Family 



a lovely set of pink cups, and a wonderful pewter tankard 
which had been used at the communion table in the old church 
in Southboro; in this Silas used to keep the honey from his 
bees; then there was the large pink dish which held the wed- 
ding cake of Moses and Susan; pillow cases spun from flax 
Aunt Persis raised, and antiques of value. In this part of the 
town there were four couples, Moses and Susan Brigham, Sol- 
omon, Jr. and Sarah (Howe) Barnes, Israel Howe and wife, 
and John Cotting and his wife, Sallie Brigham, all intimate 
friends, who frequently met at each other's homes, and their 
card parties were enjoyable affairs. During the evening the 
big flip glass of home-made toddy was passed around for each 
to sip, and the ceremony was repeated when the time for 
departure came. 

Two men of Westboro were of the tj^pe who accom- 
plished much practical business in their lifetime, Pierpont 
and Dexter Brigham, younger sons of Capt. Edmund's large 
family, one settling on the farm of Capt. Edmund, and Dexter 
becoming an inn-keeper and a trader, with a large capacity 
for affairs. 

Lincoln Brigham, No. 200, of Southboro and Cambridge, 
had an exceptional family of children, all leading persons in 
their several circles of life. Elijah Dana had large interests 
in Boston, both military and civic. His merchant brothers, 
Joseph Lincoln and Erastus Forbes, appear in the next genera- 
tion, as does his distinguished brother, the celebrated jurist, 
Judge Lincoln Flagg Brigham. 

Three of the sons of Lieut. Artemas of Northboro remained 
in that vicinity, Gardner, Henry and Lovell, while John trav- 
eled, first to New York State and then West, where his son, 
John Swarrow Brigham, left a large and interesting family 
of children. Edward D. is now as far as the State of Wash- 
ington, and others scattered from Chicago onward to the 
Pacific. Moses, settling in Binghamton, N. Y., has descendants 
in Oregon, as well as in Binghamton. 

John, James and Walter Brigham, of the John^ and Joel* 
line, placed their mark upon Dunkirk and Fredonia, N. Y., and 
produced business men of a higli grade. 

About 1836, JoeP Brigham, another descendant of Joel*, 
took his way to Lodi, Ohio, and a large number of families 



Sixth Generation 85 



from him are settled in that State, while other descendants 
have gone farther on into this wonderful western world. 

We must speak of Dr. Samuel Brigham, born of that John' 
family, who went to Phillipston. The doctor was not only a 
good physician, but a fine violinist, and his descendants, in 
some cases, have inherited his musical gifts. They are to be 
found in Ohio, Michigan and Iowa. 

Among those who went to the territory of Michigan in 
the earlier days of western emigration was Ebenezer* Brigham, 
out of the David" line. No. 97, x. His home is now in Dane 
County, Wis. One of the original proprietors of the city of 
Madison, Wis., he became a large land-holder. The testimonial 
of the Dane County Bar at the time of his death is given on 
page 150, H. B. F. 

He invited his nephew, Elijah A., son of Edmund Trow- 
bridge Brigham, No. 235, to visit him in Wisconsin, which he 
did. They attended a meeting of the Sox and Foxes, an 
Indian tribe. They sat in a circle, the old chief taking the 
first puff on the Pipe of Peace ; then passed it round the circle. 
They trusted and treated Ebenezer Brigham in all confidence. 
Although his uncle much desired him to settle there Elijah 
Brigham did not think that wild sort of life would suit him 
and returned to Philadelphia. 

A very prominent man in Quincy, Mass., was Josiah Brig- 
ham, from the Northboro home of Winslow and Alice (Gush- 
ing) Brigham, whose large family of children and descendants 
were Northboro residents until the present time, when several 
have died. Josiah seems to have been connected with banks, 
institutions and organizations in his adopted town, and he 
Avas deeply interested in the Militia. 

Four of the sons of Jonas of the last generation, had large 
families and though the children were born in North Brook- 
field, they went to Bakersfield, Vt. We have no record, how- 
ever, of INIichael, outside of Brookfield. Dr. Luther also seems 
to have preferred Massachusetts. The youngest son, Cheney, 
was the father of Robert and Elizabeth Brigham of hospital 
fame. 

From the Sudbury family of Elijah® came Danforth 
Phipps Brigham, a city official in Lowell, Mass., and a repre- 
sentative to the Legislature. He had a number of superior 



86 The Brigham Family 



daughters, some of whom were faithful friends of the Brigham 
Family Association, as was his son, Charles W. 

Josiah Fay Brigham, son of Uriah, of Bakersfield, Vt., had 
to assume the care of the family affairs at an early age because 
of the death of his father. He was a leading man in his town, 
having a large interest in public affairs. He was often chosen 
selectman and three times went to the Legislature. He took a 
great interest in Brigham Academy, the money for its founda- 
tion having come from his brother, Peter Bent. 

In Chautauqua County lived Mrs. Elijah Risley, Abigail 
Brigham, No. 226, daughter of one of the sons of Joel* who 
emigrated with all his family to New York State, and sister 
of John, James and Walter just mentioned. In this generation 
are several families in and around Fredonia and Dunkirk, 
whose numbers ran from four to fourteen children. Abigail 
Risley's family were seven in number, and she and her husband 
celebrated their golden wedding and also their 59th anni- 
versary together. She lived into her 87th year, but Gen. Risley 
died in his 83d year. Representatives of these Fredonia and 
Dunkirk families are to be found in all of our following gen- 
erations, men of large activities. 

The Fitzwilliam family of Levi^, grandson of David^, runs 
from Nos. 239 to 246 inclusive in the H. B. F., and in Wauwa- 
tosa. Wis., will be found numbers of them, while the State of 
New Hampshire is dotted with families of this branch. 

Dr. Luther Brigham, No. 256, of the Brookfield family of 
Jonas®, later of Bakersfield, practised in western Massachu- 
setts. He was liberally educated, and because of his talents as 
a speaker was in demand as a lecturer. 

A man of amazing energy, which he devoted to the good 
of town and church in Westboro, was Otis Brigham, of the 
David^ line. He was much interested in the genealogy of the 
Brighams and at one time had most of the records Morse after- 
ward gathered. His manuscripts were scattered, and were not 
available to Morse. He used annually to have fireside gath- 
erings in Westboro of the Brighams within reach. 

The landlord of the American House in Boston for many 
years was Abraham Munroe Brigham, whose wife was Mind- 
well Brigham of Northboro. He was a son of the noted sur- 
geon. Dr. Daniel Brigham. He lived to be 86 years old, and 



Sixth Generation 87 



was succeeded by his niece's husband, Lewis Rice, who was 
followed by his son, Col. Henry Brigham® Rice, whose brother 
was Major Lewis F. Rice, one of the directors of the B. F. A. 
for a number of years. 

The Rev. David Brigham, No. 266, also in David's line, 
was born in Westboro. His long career in the ministry covered 
sixty-two years. He left descendants who are living in Fall 
River and Brockton, occupying responsible places in the busi- 
ness world of to-day. 

Elmer Brigham of Westboro, of the same line of David, 
was one of the ablest citizens of that place. He had a grand- 
son, Elmer P. Howe, late of Boston, who was a distinguished 
lawyer. 

Dr. Thomas S. was a son of Gov. Paul Brigham, and is 
shown, with his large family, under No. 310. The known de- 
tails of his life are few, but he was celebrated in his profession. 
A son of his third daughter, Henry Thomas, had an interesting 
career as an early pioneer in the West, undergoing many hard- 
ships. His story and that of his descendants is given in this 
volume under No. 310. The Orr's Island branch comes from 
Dr. Thomas, through his son, James Dana, and has not been 
published before. 

Under No. 301, the Rev. Benjamin Baxter Brigham is 
named, his father having been Gershom of Fayston, Vt. He 
emigrated to Michigan, and little was known of his children. 
In Oklahoma the line of his eldest son has been found and is 
shown in this volume. 

The Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, in its excellent location 
on Huntington Avenue, Boston, is a fine monument to the 
thought of the man from Bakersfield, Vt., Peter Bent Brigham, 
who acquired the fortune Avith which it is endowed. The corps 
of physicians who work there are unsurpassed. 

Among others from Bakersfield, Vt., there came to Boston 
in his early youth, Henry Randolph Brigham, whose father 
was Benjamin Gott, and whose uncle was Peter Bent Brigham. 
The Boston Bar admitted him at the age of twenty-one and 
before his death he was a member of a law firm with a large 
practice. Intellectually keen and with high ideals, he made 
his mark even in his short life of 36 years. His son, of Cam- 



The Brigham Family 



bridge and Boston, was one of the civilians who did remark- 
able work during the World War. See this volume, No. 344. 

One of the oldest shoe manufacturing concerns in this 
country, doing business now, was founded by Capt. Francis 
Brigham in Feltonville, now Hudson, Mass. His sons are gone. 

It is sometimes a sorrowful thing to find oneself the sur- 
vivor of a generation as did Charles Brigham, of Hudson, No. 
360. One of the busiest and most public-spirited men of his 
day, %vhen the leisure of old age came he missed greatly the 
comrades who had borne the heat and burden of the day with 
him. As he once said, "When I call them, none answer." 

The Rev. John Clark Brigham, D.D., No. 363, of the New 
Marlboro branch, traveled extensively in South America in 
the interests of the American Board of Foreign Missions. His 
executive abilities found scope in the work of the correspond- 
ing secretary of the American Bible Society, and his influence 
brought about the erection of the building for that society in 
New York. He was a brother of a noted alienist. Dr. Amariah 
Brigham, No. 365, of Utica, N. Y., who came to the rescue of 
the insane when "there was no eye to pity and no arm to save." 
It is said of him : "He was the pioneer in all modern methods 
for caring for the insane." He was succeeded by his nephew, 
Dr. Dwight Burrell, No. 366, viii, who died in 1910. 

Brownington, Vt., made a home for Capt. Silas^ Brigham, 
of the Princeton line, and in that place grew to manhood and 
womanhood a family of nine children. Three sons came to 
Boston, Edmund Sanford, who was connected with the State 
House ; Albert Smith, a business man, and Charles, No. 381, 
who went into the Boston post-office in 1837, and for sixty 
years was a noted employee of that government institution. 
Another brother, John Morey, kept the "Brigham Hotel" in 
Derby Center, Vt. 

Another of the Princeton family, Micajah R., No. 384, son 
of Aaron'', emigrated to Michigan, and finally lived in Toledo, 
Ohio, where his children have resided for many years. Wil- 
liam Elbridge, however, has lately removed to Connecticut for 
business reasons, and is one of the officers of the Brigham 
Family Association. Micajah's son Oshea S., M. D. is a physi- 
cian in Toledo. 

One of the merchants of Marlboro was William Pitt Brig- 



Sixth Generation 89 



ham, No. 397, with a long line of descendants. In the time of 
the gold fever he went to California, and crossed the Isthmus 
twice, before any railroad was constructed. 

In 1813 a young man of Sudbury, John Brigham, No. 328, 
went to Georgia, where he secured a large plantation and also 
engaged in business. Twenty-seven years later he returned 
to New England and went into the lumber business in Water- 
town, in which he was joined by his brother William, the 
father of Charles the architect. Energy and business ability 
like that of his ancestor, John^, was a prominent trait with 
this John. He founded a Southern line, that of William', No. 
620, in Girard, Ga., whose seven sons and three daughters have 
given a large number of Brighams to that State whose records 
are interesting. See this volume, 791-796 inclusive. 

Rebecca" Brigham, No. 332, daughter of Joseph of Sud- 
bury, whose wife was that fine woman, Rebecca Haynes out 
of one of the old Sudbury families, married Lawrence Thomp- 
son, a planter of Alabama. Her daughter, Rebecca Bayless, 
wife of William W., lives in Florence, Ala., and has descend- 
ants in Louisville, Ky., and Atlanta, Ga., thus forming another 
Southern branch. 

Charles® Brigham, out of Ashbel Samuel's family, went 
from the farm on Brigham street in Marlboro, to Philadelphia, 
where he had a family of ten children, see No. 356, thus form- 
ing another line south, not west of New England. 

One of the Grafton Brigham women. Miss Sarah Prentice 
Brigham, No. 409, iv, was connected with Dr. Edward Everett 
Hale's "Lend-a-Hand Society," and for years gave her services 
in the cause of the distribution of reading matter throughout 
the South, a much needed work. The good she did has been 
written in higher annals than ours. 

One who passed his 95th birthday a little more than a 
month before his death, was Nicholas H. Brigham of Grafton, 
No. 411. He was a business man in a large way, but retired 
about fourteen years before his decease. A fine type of the 
race, he was a significant figure in all circles in which he 
moved. 

An eminent lawyer in Boston, one of the brothers of the 
last named Brigham, was William, No. 410. Very active as a 
legislator, a founder of the Republican party, a reviewer in 



90 The Brigham Family 

leading magazines, and speaker before societies, he drew too 
largely on his forces, and succumbed at an early age. His 
eldest son, William Tufts, was a noted scientist with a resi-

ii 2 George Sawin Stewart, d. suddenly in Watertown, Mass., 
17 Apr., 1922. Mr. Stewart was a genealogist, and was 
most helpful to the editor of the H. B. F. and the present 
volume. He discovered the error which had been made by 
Mr. W. 1. T. Brigham in regard to placing certain des- 
cendants of John2 Brigham in their Avrong generation, an 
error very easy to make on account of so many of them 
being named "John." He also found the correct name 
of the wife of Captain Nathan Brigham, No. 7, and found 
the origin of the second wife of Lieutenant Nathan Brig- 
ham, No. 22. All these changes affected the lines of 
descent of many Brighams, and we wish to acknowledge 
our indebtedness to him for this help and for competent 
advice which he freely gave.

through lectures, contributions to magazines, and through 
his books, he has labored untiringly in his chosen field. 
As director of the Bernice Panahi Bishop Museum of Poly- 
nesian Ethnology and Natural History founded by the late 
Mrs. Bishop, the Princess Panahi, wife of C. R. Bishop, the 
wealthy banker of Honolulu, he has increased the size of 
the museum more than four times its original proportions, 
with a corresponding increase in its collections, scientific 
work and publications, thus giving it a notable place among 
the museums of the world. In 1909 he published "The 
Volcanoes of Kilauea and Mauna Loa on the Island of 
Hawaii," and in 1913, "Report of a Journey Around the 



130 The Brigham Family

Brigham, is a musician and composer, res. in Boston. She 
has written several books, among them being "Scales, 
their History, Theory, etc."; "Special Finger Exercises"; 
"The Pedals of the Pianoforte." She also composed the 
"Mother Goose Symphony," successfully presented in all 
parts of the country. She is a member of the Professional 
Women's Club of Boston, of which she was corresponding 
secretary for several years. At the Twelfth Night Revels 
in 1921, Miss Brigham, in the costume and character of 
Mother Goose, conducted an orchestra of club musicians, 
who were dressed as Mother Goose characters, rendering 
her famous "Mother Goose Symphony." It was a most 
original and highly entertaining performance.

SEVENTH GENERATION 

KEVIEW 

The number of the family who have served the public 
weal in some capacity increases as we come down to the 
larger and later generations. Though Brighams in many 
parts of the country have been a blessing to their fellow-men, 
none feels more keenly than the genealogist how much is 
hidden that cannot be revealed, partly through lack of in- 
formation by the compilers, space to chronicle the deeds, or 
the modesty of those interested. Among so much of excel- 
lence, choice becomes a difficult matter, but lack of space re- 
quires that we make selections. 

The figure that looms largest out of the past in this period 
is that of Chief Justice Lincoln Flagg Brigham, of the line 
of the two Nathans, and Elijah^ A glance at the countenance 
of Judge Brigham as shown in the engraving in "The History 
of the Brigham Family" is sufficient to place him in the minds 
of all as a strong character of great ability and a leader of 
men. 

An important character in this division of the family is 
a woman descendant of Captain Edmund Brigham of West- 
boro, who played a memorable part in the development of 
education in New York and New England. Influenced in her 
youth by Mary Lyon, that wonderful leader in the education 
of girls in the second, third and fourth decades of the 19tli 
century, Mary Ann Brigham, No. 441 in the H. B. F., found 
her work in conducting a post-graduate course in connection 
with the Brooklyn, N. Y., Heights Seminary. The incalculable 
amount of good that women of the type of Mary Lyon and 
Mary Brigham have brought to those who came within the 
spheres of their influence is constantly being shown in work 
which the busy world is often too much engaged to note. Her 
alma mater, Mt. Holyoke Seminary, becoming a college, gave 
its highest reward to Mary Brigham by electing her as its first 
president. It can only be conjectured from her previous 
career what her influence would have been on the group of 
young women thus to be entrusted to her care. But the oppor- 



132 The Brigham Family 

tunity never came. On the 29tli of June, 1889, she was killed 
in a railway accident. Those who knew her best realized the 
loss the feminine world met that day. 

Arranging the story of the Brighams now more closely in 
sequence, we find a Bela Brewster Brigham, who was a colonel 
in the British army in the War of 1812, having followed his 
father Moses*' to Canada, living in Bath, N. Y., in the decade 
of his seventies. He lived to be eighty-six years old, and is 
described as having great vigor. 

A grandson of Capt. Edmund, born in his house in "West- 
boro, John of Whitingham, Vt., No. 423, was made for the 
times in which he lived, for outdoors and all its pursuits as a 
pioneer in southern Vermont, and enjoj'^ed his hard life until 
eighty years of age. In addition to the sketch in the H. B. F., 
it is to be noted that he had a fine sugar maple orchard, one 
of the best in his vicinity. His doors were open to all who 
would visit him, and their number was legion. Few hotels 
then entertained more guests than he. He had the distinction 
of marrying four times, thus always having someone to pre- 
side over his well-filled and well-surrounded table. 

To get work, Curtis Brigham, No. 434, also of that fruitful 
line of Captain Edmund, walked 90 miles to Boston when 19 
years of age, went to sea, and was captured in the War of 
1812. Twenty-one years later he went West, and still keeping 
his ability as a pedestrian, walked 125 miles to reach a certain 
point. Such men did not need parlor cars and Pullmans. To 
supply religious teaching where he lived, he opened Sunday- 
schools, and on occasion, when they lacked a clergyman, did 
not hesitate to preach. In the case of John in the East and 
Curtis in the West, both having the same vigorous ancestry, 
hard work was their meat and drink. 

Some of the Brighams were successful business men in 
this generation, Benjamin Fay, Charles Edmund of Boston, 
brother of President-elect Mary Brigham, Col. Sidney, Wil- 
liam Ashbel, Joseph Lincoln and Erastus Forbes, old time 
merchants all of them, whose numbers in the H. B. F. run from 
435 to 472. These are of the Ea.st. In the North there was 
Erastus Oakley of Baker.sfield, Vt., No. 533, out of the line of 
David^ and the Jonases, a man of enterprise, which resulted 



Seventh Generation 133 

in large things for his time; among other achievements, he 
founded the town of Brigham, Quebec. Moses B. and Jewett B. 
of Boston, his brothers, were men of sterling worth ; that line 
also produced Waldo, of Bakersfield, a lawyer and leading 
spirit in railroad development. There seemed to be something 
in the air of Bakersfield which produced this and other families 
in which boldness and energy combined to bring forth large 
movements. Coming back to the East again, we find Calvin, 
John Mason and Henry Harding of Boylston and Worcester, 
Nos. 515-517, men devoted to business and town affairs; 
Lemuel H., a manufacturer of Chicopee and Ludlow ; Adding- 
ton Munroe, a Civil War veteran, living to a great age, a life 
filled with much work and often heavy toil on the old SamueP 
place in Marlboro ; but he was never too busy to stop to con- 
sider others' lives in a helpful way ; Joshua Bates, a philosophi- 
cal instrument maker ; David Sewall of Fall River, a merchant ; 
George Otis, the banker of Westboro ; Cyrus, a milk contractor, 
one of the founders of the Apollo Club in Boston; these men 
appearing under Nos. 537-550, H. B. F. ; Levi Henry, a New 
York merchant ; Charles Corriden, a manufacturer of Worces- 
ter and William Augustus of Boston, a statistician of note and 
one who accomplished work in places of responsibility; these 
to be found under numbers 537 to 592 of the H. B. F. ; then 
under No. 630, William Eustis was a pioneer in the ice business 
in Boston. 

Dr. Adolphus, No. 485, of Shrewsbury, descended from 
Capt. Nathan through his son Thomas and grandson Itharaar, 
though only a practising physician in a country town, left 
his mark upon the minds and hearts of those whose best good 
he served so faithfully, many years. To have earned the title 
he bore of "The Good Physician," not only in Shrewsbury but 
for miles around that town, he must have carried about with 
him something of the spirit of the one who first received that 
distinction two thousand years ago, in country villages and 
towns. 

Pomfret, Dunkirk and Fredonia are the places most closely 
connected with the seventh generation of the descendants of 
Joel*, who went out into New York State. These men, Fidelio 
W., Wesley H., and Levi, Nos. 499-501, proved to be keen and 



134 The Brigham Family 

clever business men. The three named went to California in 
the middle of the 19th century. They came back, however, 
and entered energetically into railroad contracts, raised cot- 
ton in the South, opened coal mines, and when there was 
nothing else to do, were farmers and seedsmen. A younger 
brother was the Rev. George French Brigham, whose lifje 
included both business and the ministry. 

Joel of Wauseon, 0., No. 507, was a type of the best sort 
of pioneers, who started their homes in cabins of logs, ill- 
lighted and poorly heated according to modern standards. 
While Joel was farming, running a sawmill, carrying on a 
flouring mill and building up a mercantile business, his wife, 
Betsey (Lyon) Brigham, was bearing ten children and raising 
eight of them. 

We must note, in passing, Silvester Brigham, No. 519, out 
of the David^ line, a man of pluck and strength or he could 
not have walked from Illinois to New Hampshire and back 
again, served in the Black Hawk war, and laid out the town 
of Dover, 111., to which his father and brother Joseph removed. 
He had eight children, one of whom was the clergyman, the 
late Rev, Joseph Webb Brigham, for many years the pastor 
of a Baptist church in Dorchester. 

Out of Bakersfield came a young man to Boston to seek 
his fortune. He found it. On Parker Hill in Boston stands the 
Robert B. Brigham Hospital for Incurables, the result of his 
labors and good judgment for financial investments. To his 
sister, Elizabeth F. Brigham, Robert B. owed much ; she was 
his balance wheel. Together they planned this hospital for 
those deemed incurably ill and without resources to pay for 
long and expensive illness. 

Facing page 412 of "The History of the Brigham Family," 
one may see a face which shows insight and alertness in a 
high degree. He came from David^, Asa*, Stephen^, and Sulli- 
van^, and to all the good qualities which tradition says they 
possessed he added some of his own. He took great interest in 
public reforms, such as the anti-slavery movement; became 
both a carpenter and contractor, taught school, was a railroad 
constructor, went into the real estate business; taught singing 
school and played on the bass viol and flute for pastime; and 



Seventh Generation 135 

for further amusement, became Justice of the Peace, town- 
ship clerk and finally Mayor of Toledo. If Dr. John was 
called "ubiquitous" in the second generation, what would you 
say of Mavor of the seventh? In the eighth generation will 
be found interesting records of his family, which includes the 
late Charles 0. Brigham, B. F. A. president. 

From this same Asa and Stephen, through the latter's son 
John, another family of men comes into view. These are of 
Ogden, N. Y. ; Orville P., whose home was in Spencerport ; and 
of his six children, but one is left, Elbert W., of Brockport, 
who is upholding the high standards of the family; John D., 
No. 564, who remained in Ogden and left a large family; 
Alonzo, who went to Lafayette, Ind. ; Milton, No. 566, of Spen- 
cerport, whose line is represented by Henry Martyn Brigham, 
a lawyer of Brooklyn, N. Y., No. 771 ; and Charles of the same 
town, all men of substantial worth, from whom their communi- 
ties received that which money could not buy, good counsel 
and fine examples of excellent living. 

We come to the Brighams of Watertown and Girard, Ga., 
descendants of Dr. John-. Of late years William Theodore 
Brigham, who was a corporation president in Baltimore, lived 
on Shelter Island, N. Y., where his brother Charles, the well- 
known architect of Watertown and Boston, joined him. Wil- 
liam T. died in 1919 and Charles in 1925. William's sons are 
carrying out the traditions of energy and resourcefulness in- 
herent in their line, in Shelter Island. William of Girard left 
seven sons who have present-day descendants in that part of 
the South, a most prolific branch. See Nos. 791-796. 

In this section of our family are several clergymen. 
Among them are two sons of Willard of Marlboro, the Rev. 
Levi and the Rev. Willard, Nos. 582 and 584, the latter the 
father of Helen and Mary Brigham of Cambridge. Elisha and 
Sophronia of Fayston, Vt., had two ministers in their group of 
children, the Rev. Leander and the Rev. Albert, Nos. 601 and 
602, and another son was Dr. Gershom Nelson, father of Wil- 
lard I. T. Brigham. 

We would call attention to the families of Timothy and 
Phineas of Pennsylvania and New York State, running from 
Nos. 638 to 646. Also the son of Salmon, Orlando L. and his 



136 The Brigham Family 

family under 647, all appearing in the first volume and a part 
in this one. 

In the line of shoe manufacturing the descendants of 
Francis of Hudson, Rufus H. and Waldo B., Nos. 649-650, con- 
tinued his work, their firm being one of the oldest in New 
England. 

A member of Congress in 1878-1880, Lewis Alexander 
Brigham, No. 654, in the Samuel-, Jedediah^ and Francis* line, 
was a lawyer in Jersey City, N. J., and an educator. The 
eighth and ninth generations in New Jersey are men of stand- 
ing and efficiency. 

Through Winslow of the fourth and Capt. Daniel of the 
fifth and Winslow of the sixth generation, came Eugene Wins- 
low, who settled in Manchester, N. H., where he lived as a 
merchant for long years until in his 80th year. His near 
relatives, Dennison, son of Capt. Daniel, who lived on the 
tannery site of SamueP, raised a family of seven children, and 
John Winslow, son of Col. Aaron, kept to farming in Marlboro, 
and benefited his town by going into the ice business. His son, 
a professor, teaches agriculture. Humphrey, of the Jedediah 
family through Ashley*^, came into his inheritance as a shoe 
manufacturer in Hudson. 

The daughters of William Pitt Brigham married and lived 
in Marlboro and their children hold responsible positions. Of 
the surviving sons, one went to California, and the other 
remained in Marlboro ; the descendants of the first are divided 
between the Pacific coast and the East. A granddaughter of 
Alfred A. was, until her marriage, a prominent newspaper 
woman in Marlboro. 

Col. Henry Hobart Brigham, out of the Asa* and Jotham 
branch, secretary of the Anti-Slavery Society in Plymouth Co., 
Mass., was also a manufacturer of tacks and nails in Whitman. 
His line continues in the next generation under another 
family name. 

Charles Hastings, William Eustace, Nancy Sophia, and 
other sisters, and Major Henry O. Brigham, children of Hast- 
ings, also of the Asa-Jotham line, have given Marlboro and 
other towns well-placed citizens.

host of friends, choice people, are deeply grieved at her 
early decease. The Marlboro Committee of 1921, who made 
possible the splendid meeting of that year, will recall her 
helpfulness in all details relating to the membership out- 
side of Marlboro, and her indefatigable preparations for 
the Westboro meeting in July, 1924, are well remembered. 
During the protracted illness of the genealogist, Emma E. 
Brigham, Mary always responded nobly to the many calls 
upon her time and strength. She was a staunch and true 
friend with a joyous nature and a large sense of humor. 
The great pang she suffered in leaving earth centered 
around her elder sister, Helen, whose loss is immeasurable. 
The burial was in Winchendon.

EIGHTH GENERATION 

REVIEW 

Charles Brewster Brigham, an early settler of Chicago, 
dealt there in real estate. Before the fire he was president of 
the Union Dispatch Company. His eldest son, Gustavus Brews- 
ter, who died this year, was talented in music as was his father 
before him. His other sons, Charles F. and Samuel F., reside 
respectively in Indianapolis and Chicago. 

An early musician of Marlboro, whose life extended over 
75 years of the 19th century, was Cyrus Brigham, No. 688. 
He was chorister for many years in churches of his town, and 
plaj'ed the violin, and so inspired his large family with a love 
of music that nearly all contributed to the enjoyment of 
hundreds in their da3^ He might rightly be called the father 
of the Brigham Orchestra, which is specifically dealt with in 
the biography of his son, William H. 

The eldest son of John of Whitingham, Vt., Martyn Free- 
man Brigham, remembered well that year of no summer, 1816, 
and at seven years of age conceived a distaste for rye in any 
form because that was their only breadstuff, and possibly 
because he had to tend the hoe-cake in front of the fireplace. 
He was the only son for fifteen years, and his laborious life 
began early. No easy road was his to follow through the 
years that lasted until two daj^s before his 88th birthday. In 
the midst of an illness in his late seventies, he said, however, 
"I would like to go back and live it all over again." For good 
reasons he was rich in the love of friends and neighbors. Near- 
ly thirty years have passed since he took his "journey to the 
Infinite," yet in some homes he is still a gracious influence. 

For fifty years George Ball Brigham, No. 703, out of the 
Captain Edmund branch of Westboro, was the leading manu- 
facturer of footwear in that town, where was the factory, and 
where he had a family of eleven children, of whom eight 
reached adult age. His sons, John and the late Horace, were 
his partners and successors. 

A gentleman at heart and in appearance, the late Dexter 
II. Brigham, No. 706, of Westboro and Springfield, was cul- 



Eighth Generation 189 



tured and traveled. He visited the town of Brigham, Cumber- 
land County, England, and always believed that there was the 
original home of our family. This has now been disproved. 
The business he founded in Springfield is still in existence. 

Algernon Sidney Brigham, No. 712, of Marlboro, was a 
shoe manufacturer, in which business he spent a long life, 
dying at the age of 84. He came from Winslow* on his mother's 
side, and from SamueP, through his father, and it would seem 
to have been impossible for him to engage in any other busi- 
ness than that connected with leather, Avith the blood of two 
such pioneers in his veins. 

Loriman Stevens Brigham, No. 713, a brother of Algernon, 
however, broke away from the traditional family pursuit, and 
was an old time merchant in IMarlboro, of the firm of Brigham 
& Eager, Jewelers. He held many offices of trust and import- 
ance, and was chairman of the committee for the first B. F. A. 
meeting in Marlboro in 1894, when more than 500 representa- 
tives of the family met in the 259th year of the arrival of 
Thomas the Emigrant in 1635, in Boston and Cambridge. 

Dr. John Wesley, No. 717, son of the Rev. Elijah Brigham, 
and out of the branch of the Nathans and Col. Ephraim, went 
West and practised medicine in Wisconsin and Iowa, but was 
drawn back to his native Massachusetts. He had a family of 
four sons who became leading business men in Sutton, and 
he is well represented by descendants. (See this vol. and the 
H. B. F.) 

The Rev. Charles Henry Brigham, from the Southboro 
Nathan, was a professor and a scholar, holding important 
positions in his church organization, besides traveling exten- 
sively in the East and Europe. He died young, unmarried. 

Dr. Franklin Brigham, No. 739, son of Dr. Adolphus of 
Shrewsbury, followed in the footsteps of his father and became 
the much loved physician of Shrewsbury and surrounding 
towns. His brother, Frederick A., chose a different line and 
went to Topeka, Kans., and founded Oakland, where he became 
the leading citizen, serving the city as mayor for fifteen years. 
Both men were intellectually superior and possessed splendid 
physiques. Dr. Brigham had spiritual insight, as shown by 
verses published in the H. B. F. 



lyo The Bbigham Family 

In Northboro, Boylston and Berlin lived the six sons and 
some of the daughters of Joel, No. 490, who married Nancy 
Brigham, daughter of Fortunatus. The present generation will 
be found in both volumes under Nos. 742-745, inclusive, and 
No. 819. In all generations, they have been people who were 
a great credit to the name. 

In Chicago, a son of the Rev. George French Brigham, the 
late Edmund Douglass, No. 748, was connected for many years 
with the Chicago and Northwestern Railway, as General 
Freight Agent and Assistant Freight Traffic Manager. Large 
executive abilities were his, and the strain that shows itself in 
so many of the descendants of JoeP appears in Mr. Brigham 
and his brothers, one of whom, the late George F., Jr., was 
many years in St. Louis. Later he went to Tulsa, Okla., with 
the North American Car Company. See Nos. 748 and 749 in 
this volume, for more extended biography. 

The Joel* branch furnished another line of forceful men, 
one of whom is the late Col. Joseph Henry, son of Winfield 
Scott Brigham, and nephew of Joel of Wauseon. He, too, had 
energy to burn, and his biography in the H. B. F., No. 751, is 
indicative of the large place he held among the people of 
Delta, 0., his home town, and in the capital of the nation. 
In scanning the stories of these able men, one feels regret that 
they seldom last over into old age in our day. Walter Scott 
and Haven Theodore Brigham, sons of Joel of Wauseon, had 
their part in the stirring time of the early sixties, being in the 
army of the Civil War. The elder worked for the Rural Free 
Delivery in his county, a great blessing. Mr. Haven T. Brig- 
ham has recently died, after he had passed a successful busi- 
ness life, and was taking the leisure which had come to him 
in Florida in the Avinters. Each brother left a son and daughter. 

William Oakley Brigham, No. 759, of Bakersfield, Vt., of 
the line of Jonas* and Jonas^, was a Civil War veteran and 
held many offices in his town ; two of his sons are in professions, 
one as a physician and the other as a dentist. 

The Rev. Charles A. G. Brigham, a Gershom''-Joseph* 
descendant, was a graduate of Wesleyan University, and lived 
in Enfield, Conn. The Rev. Leonard Warren Brigham, of the 
Benjamin^-Gershom^ line, is a Vermonter, and a Universalist 



Eighth Generation 191 



preacher. He has a son and a grandson in the ministry in the 
same church. He wrote the genealogist in the early days when 
the first volume was delayed, "I am afraid all our posterity 
will have arrived before the book is published," which proved 
not to be true. The Rev. Sidney S., a Vermonter, came of the 
Elnathan^ branch, the venturesome son of the family of 
Thomas^ who went to Connecticut, and of Gov. Paul of Ver- 
mont. He left a few descendants in Vermont, and a surviving 
brother, Sanford J., of St. Albans, whose children reside there, 
one being at present a Member of Congress. 

Charles Oliver Brigham, son of Mavor of Toledo, 0., en- 
deared himself to all Brighams fortunate enough to know him 
in the days of his presidency of the B. F. A. His biography, 
under No. 768 H. B. F., reveals the wide extent of his activities 
in life, from which his sudden death removed him. 

Willard I. T. Brigham, No. 784, the son of Dr. Gershom 
N., had a descent not only from Thomas- but also from John-, 
and as in so many cases where John enters into a man's line, 
there will be found more than common energy and achieve- 
ment. In his chosen line of genealogy, Willard did the work 
of two men in a short time. He prepared by far the major 
part of "The History of the Brigham Family," and made possi- 
ble a connected story of the Brighams descended from Thomas 
of Yorkshire, England. His struggle with ill-health in the 
effort to complete his task was in the nature of a tragedy. 
See H. B. F. 

In Girard, Ga., the burning of his home caused the death 
of Dr. John Christopher Brigham, No. 791, a physician and 
plantation farmer. To rescue important papers, he was burned 
to death in the house where he had gone to save them. A 
large family of his brothers, sons of William", have given to 
Georgia a representative group of the family, through John C, 
William H., Thaddeus R., Clarence R., Charles, Walter B., and 
Harry W., all except William now deceased, several of whom 
left large families. Interesting records will be found under 
Nos. 620 and 791-796. These are of the John- line. 

Dr. Reader Smith Brigham, of the George* line, had ex- 
perience early as a surgeon in the Navy and later practised 



192 The Brigham Family 

ill a number of western towns; one of his sons is a Lieut-Col. 
in the U. S. Army. 

We have already spoken of Dr. Johnson Brigham, the 
B. F. A. president, now taking, at this writing, a journey 
around the world. Physically a man not more than sixty-five, 
in spite of the fact that his years number more on this planet, 
his courage and enthusiasm are inspiring. Reference to his 
biography in this volume will give the salient points of his 
later career. All his friends are wishing him bon voyage. 

Dr. Albert Perry Brigham has a very interesting sketch 
in this volume of the events of his scholarly life in the last 
twenty years. When he retired from the work of active teach- 
ing in Colgate University in 1925, the Dean of the College 
said in part : "He has left his mark upon this college for a 
generation; as a preacher he has combined clearness of vision 
with lucidity of utterance ; as a scientist he has gained an 
international reputation ; as a writer he has added to the vivid 
presentation of fact the charm of literary style." 

Gen. William H. Brigham came down from Samuel- through 
Francis, the shoe manufacturer of Hudson, and was associated 
in business with his father Rufus H. and his uncles Wilbur F. 
and Waldo B. At the time of his death he was president of 
the company, then known as the F. Brigham & Gregory Com- 
pany. Aside from business, he was pre-eminent in the affairs 
of his community and State, being in the Legislature, on the 
Governor's Council and giving his valuable services on direc- 
torates and in the militia. 

The son of Charles Hastings' and grandson of Hastings", 
the late Eugene 0. Brigham, filled a large place in Marlboro's 
social and business world, and was foremost in civic move- 
ments. He had many friends in the family outside IMarlboro, 
for he was long a director in the B. F. A. William Eustace, 
brother of Charles H., had an only son, Eustace Hastings, who 
died lately, leaving two daughters. The daughters of Hastings 
have additional records in this volume, and the story of the 
male line has been augmented by numerous families not be- 
fore published.

Eighth Generatiox 195 



V Mary Deborah (Brigham) Alexander, d. 7 Oct., 1918, ae. 69 
yrs., 9 mo8.; her husband, Samuel, d. in 1901. A singer and 
member of the Marlboro First Congregational Church choir; 
she also sang at the Peace Jubilee in Boston, under P. S. 
Gilmore, and was a member of the Theodore Thomas Ora- 
torio Society of Cincinnati, being one of his celebrated 
quartette. 

vi Cyrus Waldoo Brigham, d. 26 Feb., 1922, ae. 71 yrs., 2 mos. 
A noted ball player, he belonged to the Fairmount Baseball 
Club during its existence. He became captain of the Hook 
and Ladder Co. and later Chief Engineer of the Marlboro 
Fire Dept. He was a charter member of the original Brig- 
ham 's Orchestra. His wife is Ellen N. (Winch). Ch.

vii William Henry Brigham, d. s. p. 1 Apr., 1923, ae. 70 yrs., 3 
mos., 20 days, leaving a widow, Margaret (Cosgrove). He 
was the leader and founder of " Brigham 's Orchestra," 
which position was wrongly attributed to his brother Sidney 
E. in the H. B. F. This famous orchestra continued as it 
had begun in 1871 with four of the Brigham brothers in 
its membership, until 1895, when it was divided; William 
H. continued as leader and the name was unchanged, and 
Harry E. became the head of an orchestra which took his 
name. For a number of years both these organizations con- 
tinued in this way and were very popular. Some years ago 
Mr. W. H. Brigham retired from active work, but occa- 
sionally contributed music for social events. He took part 
in P. S. Gilmore 's great Jubilee in Boston in 1872. For 
a long period he was leader of the Cadet Band, and choir- 
master of the Universalist and Methodist churches in Marl- 
boro. The ninth generation of Brighams in Marlboro have 
lost a true gentleman and artist. 
viii Sidney E.o Brigham was not the leader of the musical organ- 
ization known as " Brigham 's Orchestra" but was one of 
its members. The word "band" should not have been 
applied to this organization, as given in the IL B. F. He 
res. in Westboro, with his wife, Nettie (Forbush), and d. 
there in Oct., 1925. Ch. additions: 1 Cynthia Maryio 
Brigham, inheriting the musical talent of the family, is 
an organist, holding responsible positions; 2 Sidney (not 
Sydney) Eugene Brigham, Jr., is a baritone singer; m. 26 
Oct., 1913, Ella M. Gerry of Westboro, b. 22 Jan., 1884. 

ix Caroline E. Brigham, d. 22 Oct., 1921, in her 65th yr.; m. 
Alfred W. Wickham of Scranton, Pa., where she is interred. 

X George A. Brigham, a musician, res. in Marlboro. 

xi Harrison Ellsworth Brigham and his wife, Annie E. (Pond), 
res. in Marlboro. In the 3d line of the paragraph cor- 
responding to this section in the H. B. F. delete the word 
"band"; it should read "orchestra." Mr. Brigham has 
had a highly successful musical career at the head of his 



196 The Brigham Family 



own organization, "The Harry E. Brigham Orchestra." 
In 1925 he celebrated his fiftieth anniversary as an orches- 
tral player, having fulfilled 10,367 engagements. In the 
first election in Marlboro under the new charter in 1924 
and 1925, he was elected President of the City Council.

Eighth Generation 225 

771 HENRY MARTYN« BRIGHAM of New York, and 
Brooklyn, where resides. A graduate of the University of 
Rochester, and a lawyer, specializing in patent and trade mark 
law; is a member of the Brooklyn Bar, Am. Patent Law and 
New York County Associations, and numerous clubs and 
societies. He invented a furnace for heat-treating big guns 
which was extensively used in the World War; also other 
valuable inventions which have come into common use. In- 
terested in wild life, he drafted and procured the passage of 
important statutes ; one permits the Conservation Commissioner 
to license, breed and sell game birds and animals which has 
resulted in a large and profitable industry; another prevents 
lawless trespass by sportsmen on farm lands. A writer of 
verse, descriptive of nature, he intends shortly to publish in 
book form. His wife, Marie Antoinette (Whiting), is a mem- 
ber of the Chaminade Choral Club. She is President of the 
NcAv Era Club (1925) ; a member of the Nat. Soc. of N. E. 
Women, Brooklyn Colony, "Photoreone," Study, Shakespeare 
and Ex-presidents' clubs. Their only son : 

i Harry WhitingO Brigham, b. in Brooklyn, 19 Dec, 1890; d. at 
Camp McLellan, Anniston, Ala., 30 Jan., 1919; m. 11 Aug., 
1913, Elizabeth Payson Prentiss, b. 2 Jan., 1894, in Dorset, 
Vt. Educated at the University of Va., he studied a yeai 
in Stuttgart, Germany. At Pine Bluff Camp, L. I., he won, 
during summer vacations, five medals in public speaking; 
developed unusual athletic ability as a middle distance 
runner, made many new records and won over 70 medals. 
Prom 1912 to 1918 he successfully engaged in the automobile 
business. Enlisting in Aug., 1918, he was sent to Camp 
Gordon, Ga., where he was assigned to the Personnel Dept., 
passed his own trade test examination exceptionally high, 
and was appointed Chief Examiner of Mechanics and 
Chauffeurs. The Dept. removed to Camp McLellan, Annis- 
ton, Ala., and he was placed on special detail to the Com- 
mander of the Camp. Because he wished to go overseas, 
he refused an appointment to an officers' training camp, 
was transferred to the Headquarters Detachment of the 
9th Field Artillery, and placed in charge of transportation, 
as acting sergeant of the first-class. The armistice came 
a few days later and prevented the issuance of his warrant. 
Nearly three tedious mouths followed. "He made us all 
happy," a tent-mate wrote; "When we heard some one 
singing the boys would say, 'Here comes Brigham,' and 
we would forget our troubles," wrote another. In the 
last week of Jan., 1919, Harry and two others were stricken 
with influenza, all developed pneumonia and died within a 
few days of each other. Harry was to have been discharged 
^n the 29th and died on the "30th. Beautiful memories of 



226 The Brigham Family 



Harry's life, his lovely voice, athletic prowess and happy 
temperament inspired a friend and the following lines 
were published in the Literary Digest of August 23, 1919, 
with this comment: 

"It was not the lot of all who gave up their lives 
for their country to die on the field of action; but the 
sacrifice of those who died in training, or on the way 
to the front, is none the less cherished in the grateful 
remembrance of the Nation." 

To HAREY WHITING BRIGHAM 

Sweet Singer and Swift Runner 

Who 

Died in the Service of His Country. 

Ah, but the singer's song was sweet! 

But the song is done. 
Swift and sure were the runner 's feet. 

But the race is run. 
And the ringing plaudits die, 
And the laurels withered lie 
In the dust of the futile years. 

Was it for this the singer sang, 
A wreath of faded bays? 
Was it for this the plaudits rang 

As the runner coursed o'er the ways? 
Nay, for the runner's goal is won, 
And the singer's song, but just begun. 
Rings clear with the choiring spheres.

802 DR. JOHNSON^ BRIGHMI is of Des Moines, la., 
where he has resided for twenty-eight years as the State Libra- 
rian of Iowa. On March 11, 1926, he celebrated his 80th birth- 
day, and on that occasion his friends of more than a quarter of 
a century gave voice to an admiration and regard which few 
men are privileged to receive. State and city rose as one man 
to do him honor. One friend wrote among other lines: 

* ' Warder of books, preserver of the word, 
Gatherer and nurturer of the souls of men, 
Under these prairie skies new virtues bloom, 
New passions warm to fresh creative wills. 
And all their ardors center where you keep 
Your steadfast fortress in the stream of time, 
Hail to you, prophet of the pioneers ! 
Hail to you, guardian of man's living word." 

Mr. Brigham's achievements in the literary world are many, 
but the friendships he has gathered along the way are mani- 
fold. In 1923 he was honored by the librarians of Iowa, who 
presented to him life membership in the American Library 
Association, and the amount was so far over-subscribed that it 
was a high testimony to the esteem in which he is held by mem- 
bers of his profession in Iowa. In 1925 Mr. Brigham was given 
the honorary degree of Litt.D. by Drake University. In 1907 
he was elected its president by the Brigham Family Associa- 
tion, and he has been very faithful in taking the long journey 
East from his home to preside over the meetings, where he has 
been as welcome as at his own fireside. His home life has been 



Eighth Generation 237 

ideal, Mrs. Brigham, who* was Lucy "Walker, being a home- 
maker and companion whose peer it would be difficult to find. 
Their delight in their two charming and talented daughters 
has been unmeasured. *'An Old Man's Idyl," a novel which 
Dr. Brigham published some years ago, was brought out in a 
special edition as a wedding gift to his daughters. Besides this 
he has published "The Banlter in Literature," "Life of James 
Harlan," "History of Des Moines," and "Iowa, Its Historj^ 
and Foremost Citizens." The estimate of a man is easily made 
when it is known in what esteem his family, intimate friends 
and fellow-citizens hold him, and in this respect our beloved 
Association president has first rank. Ch. additions :

NINTH GENERATION 

REVIEW 

It has been said that the past "was once "a vital and per- 
plexing present." The compiler of these records and stories of 
nine to twelve generations has found this statement something 
better than a platitude, something more than a truism. To 
visualize, even in a small degree, the lives of the men and women 
of this race of Brighams brings us near to the heart of a people 
who, with high hopes for themselves or their children, wrought 
faithfully toward the upbuilding of our nation, and as pioneers 
made homes and settlements in crude towns and wild places. 
When the country was threatened by war, our record of Brig- 
hams in the Revolution, the Civil and the World Wars, is high- 
ly creditable. But, in "the arts of peace," the interests of 
justice, the work of the churches and schools, and in uphold- 
ing high ideals in community and State our people have 
honored themselves and their name, as many pages in this and 
the first volume will attest. , 

There are few States in the Union, perhaps none, where 
descendants of Thomas Brigham of Yorkshire, England, have 
not laid foundations for homes, won success or struggled with 
adversity. There is nothing unusual in this; other families 
of the old stock have done the same; have reached high sta- 
tions, acquired large wealth and social distinction. These things 
are not unknown to the Brighams. It is well, however, to 
emphasize a little the achievements of others whose names, as 
well as those of all their friends, "have been carved for many 
a year on the tomb" only, and would now be entirely forgotten 
but for such annals as these. As nearly all the heads of fam- 
ilies in this portion of our book are living, there are few to 
mention in this ninth review. 

Ervin Frank Brigham, j3oming down from Curtis and Capt. 
Edmund of Westboro, was one of the tall members of the race, 
and it is believed that nearly all the elders of this particular 
branch were men not under six feet in height. Mr. Brigham 
was bom in the West, his grandfather being that wonderful 
pioneer who is mentioned in the story of the seventh generation. 



Ninth Generation 241 



He was a fruitgrower in Idaho, and his sons are now in Los 
Angeles, one an eminent surgeon. (See this vol., No. 810). 

The sudden departure from life of Nathaniel Maynard 
Brigham of the Natick family, that wonderful singer, was a 
great shock to his friends and admirers who had enjoyed his 
voice and his lectures, particularly the one on the Grand 
Canyon. 

Dr. Franlc Fontanelle Brigham, son of the Westboro shoe- 
manufacturer, stepped outside the family business and became 
a physician, with fine prospects. His career was cut short at the 
early age of 44, and crushed hopes that had been cherished for 
him by the family and the community in Lynn, where he per- 
formed his very helpful life-work. 

Some whose genealogical records occur under sections in 
the eighth generation are yet of the ninth, and mention of them 
belongs here. 

William H. Brigham of Marlboro of the musical Cyrus 
Brigham family, left many friends among his townsmen, who 
had taken pride in his achievements as a leader of his orchestra, 
known all over New England. No more friendly spirit walked 
the streets of Marlboro, took part in its festivities or added 
more to tlie pleasure of life than William H. Brigham. 

Rose Ella (Brigham) Coxford, only daughter of Alasco 
D., and wife of William F. of New York, brought to the meet- 
ings of the Brigham Family Association the great charm of 
her presence, and her deep interest in the welfare of the asso- 
ciation and the Brigham book. She gave to the laborers in the 
making of the book inspiration and hope for its future, which 
at times was sorely needed. 

Scattered through the pages of this volume will be found 
notices of the services of the sons and daughters of our families 
who were in the World War. In three instances, at least, the 
supreme sacrifice was made. 

Lieut. William Munroe Brigham, son of William M. and 
grandson of Addington M. of Marlboro, was killed in action, 
the only instance, so far as known, of one of the name laying 
down his life in battle in this war. (See No. 763, iii, this vol.) 

Sergeant Harry Whiting Brigham, son of Henry Martyn 
Brigham of Brooklyn, N. Y., died in Camp McLellan, Anniston, 



242 The Brigham Family 



Ala., of pneumonia, nearly three months after the armistice. 
But for the apparently needless delay in his discharge from the 
Army, Harry's friends feel that his life need not have been 
sacrificed. (See No. 771, i, this vol.) 

Ethel Percy Brigham of Chicago, daughter of Ernest 
Algernon Brigham, formerly of Marlboro and now of Los 
Angeles, died in 1922 as the result of an injury by the explosion 
of a shell near the roadside between Chateau Thierry and 
Belleau Wood, in 1919, after the war itself was over, but before 
she had finished her work in France and been discharged. (See 
No. 814, ii, this vol.) 

Probably these are not the only instances of the loss of life 
because of the war among our people, but the three mentioned 
are significant of the spirit of the younger generations who 
served at home and abroad. 

''Death has left many songs unsung, a myriad graves are 
filled, youth is blighted in this white winter men call death, and 
its cup is pressed to the lips of love." 

Yet, blessed are they who realize that these young lives are 
not wasted, that life is eternal and that its "symbol is a circle 
and not a straight line. ' '

246 The Brigham Family 



Ethel Percy Brigham, d. 25 Jan., 1922, ae. 51 yrs., 9 mos., 10 
days. She was assistant cashier of the National Bank of 
the Republic in Chicago at the time of her death, and be- 
fore that for many years, save a period which she devoted 
to work with a Base Hospital Unit in France, where she 
went in August, 1918. It was stationed at Grande Blotterau, 
near Nantes. In April, 1919, when on leave for the first 
time, she was injured by the explosion of a shell near the 
roadside between Chateau Thierry and Belleau Wood. One 
of the young marines walking with her was killed, and the 
other badly injured, but she succeeded in getting assistance 
for him and did not give attention to her own injuries 
until he was safe at the Hospital. She herself was in the 
Hospital at Neuilly until the latter part of the next June, 
and under care of physicians until August, returning to 
America in September, 1919, receiving her discharge from 
Army Service shortly thereafter. She was not a nurse, but 
was attached to the Unit as a secretarial member. But 
she aided wherever and whenever possible, and gave of her 
strength untiringly. As the result, she lived but a little over 
two years after her return home. The heroes did not all 
wear the soldiers' uniforms nor engage in battle, in the 
late World War.

tarial position of importance in New York City. She is 
highly trained having college and other preparation for the

APPENDICES 



APPENDIX A 

TWO BRIGHAM HOSPITALS 

Under this title in Volume One of "The History of the 
Brigham Family," the testamentary provisions concerning the 
then proposed Brigham hospitals in Boston, Mass., made pos- 
sible by the generosity of Peter Bent Brigham and his nephew 
and niece, Robert Breck Brigham and Elizabeth Fay Brigham, 
are fully set forth. In the years since the publication of that 
volume, these institutions have become a part of the life of 
the city of Boston, and since 1913 and 1914 have been carrying 
on their work of relief for persons residing in the city of 
Boston, the Peter Bent Brigham provision including the county 
of Suffolk. 

Situated on South Huntington Avenue in Boston, the 
Peter Bent Brigham hospital now ranks in size, equipment and 
the eminence of its staff of doctors with the three largest 
hospitals in the city, the Massachusetts General, the City, and 
the Homeopathic hospitals. At its head is Dr. Harvey Gush- 
ing, surgeon-in-chief, whose work on the brain has placed him 
among the leaders of scientific research, with Dr. Henry A. 
Christian as physician-in-chief. The arrangement of the build- 
ing has been pronounced by an eminent authority as ideal. 
It is divided into separate buildings called pavilions, each 
housing only a few wards. The patients are very fortunate in 
the amount of light and sunshine which the plan of the build- 
ing permits them to receive. Porches are numerous and all 
patients can be easily moved out of doors. Mr. Brigham's 
wish was to provide hospital care for "sick persons in indigent 
circumstances," but it has been legally decided that the pur- 
pose of the will can be perfectly carried out if some paying 
patients are received, as long as their presence does not divert 
any of the money from the free patients. One pavilion with 
forty-seven beds is provided for private patients, and four 
sections with one hundred and seventy-eight beds are devoted 
to general wards. Adults are received for care "irrespective 
of race, creed or economic means." The hospital is operated 



252 The Brigham Family 

under a close working agreement with Harvard University, 
whose medical school buildings are in the rear of the hospital. 
The out-patient department is conducted on a modern, dis- 
tinctive plan, which obviates the necessity of long hours of 
waiting on the part of the patient, and allows the doctor more 
time for examination. More than sixty thousand persons 
availed themselves in 1925 of the opportunity to receive medi- 
cal assistance of the highest quality. Social workers co-oper- 
ate in this department concerning problem cases. 

The Robert B. Brigham Hospital, situated on the summit 
of Parker Hill, in Boston, Dr. Louis M. Spear, physician-in- 
chief, with an exceptional staff of surgeons and consultants, 
receives specifically chronic and difficult cases and such as are 
incurable, chiefly of those unable to pay for treatment. Where 
the disease cannot be controlled or is hopeless, the patient is 
made as comfortable as possible during life. Many cases, with 
the special treatment provided by the hospital equipment, are 
restored to health and to a place in the world again. Arthritis, 
the most common cause of chronic helplessness, is frequently 
cured by the methods adopted, which are attracting so much 
attention from members of the medical profession that physi- 
cians are constantly visiting the institution to observe and 
study, with the intention of using these methods in their own 
communities. The hospital is taxed to its limit with the pa- 
tients who can be received within its walls, and in addition 
many cases who remain in their homes, and do not need the 
daily supervision given in the hospital wards, are watched 
and given medical care for long periods of time by the doctors, 
nurses and other attendants of the hospital. The hygiene of 
such homes is carefully inspected and arranged, and great 
benefit often results both to the individual patient and mem- 
bers of the household. As in the case of the Peter Bent Brig- 
ham hospital, it has been decided by legal authority that such 
paying patients may be received as will not interfere with 
the work for the free patients. In 1924 the whole number of 
patients treated in the Public and Private Wards and in the 
Home Service Department was three hundred and sixty-three. 
The Occupational Therapy work, the Hydrotherapeutic branch, 
the Basal Metabolism tests, the Physiotherapy, Home Service 



Appendix 253 

and Dietary Departments, and the invaluable Laboratory, all 
combine to render the work of this hospital a great blessing 
to individuals and the community, a blessing, the value of 
which will be increasingly shown as the years pass. 



APPENDIX B 



GEORGE BRIGHAM born in Gessborough, Yorkshire, 
England, about 1798, came to America in a sailing vessel, 
being seven weeks upon the voyage. With him came his wife, 
Jane (Ward), and six sons. Numbers of his descendants live 
in New York and other states, and some are in Canada, where 
he settled. A grandson, Charles Orville Ray Brigham, who 
furnished this information, lives in Toronto, Canada. This 
line out of Yorkshire may possibly have an ancestry there 
similar to our own in the far distant past. 

Out of Leicestershire, England, came DR. PHILIP S. 
BRIGHAM, who died in 1851 in Ann Arbor, Mich. The 
mother of his wife, Sophronia S. (Smith), was out of the Lee 
family. They had eight daughters. 

ANDREW BRIGHAM was a Puritan in County Donegal, 
Urney, Ireland. His grandson, MARCUS DILL BRIGHAM, 
emigrated to Philadelphia in 1887, where he appears in the 
directory in later years. He had, in 1893, two sons and two 
daughters. 

In Ottawa, 111., ten children were born to CHARLES 
HENRY BRIGHAM, of Bremen, Germany, where he left a 
father when he emigrated to America about 1844. His chil- 
dren were born between 1859 and 1882. 

Certain Brighams in Pennsylvania and elsewhere are 
descended from a WILLIAM BRIGHAM who emigrated to 
America in the 18th century, whose wife was of gentle birth. 
They settled in Franklin, Pa. 

Tennessee contains a number of Brigham families 
descended from JAMES BRIGHAM, who emigrated about 
1650 from Great Britain to the vicinity of Philadelphia with 
his brother Charles. The latter changed his name to Brigance. 
The descendants of James' greatgraudson, William Brigham, 



254 The Brigham Family 

are rather numerous in Tennessee, where are also persons 
named Brigance. 

JAMES HARVEY BRIGHA^I settled in Louisiana, with 
his wife, Sarah Davidson (Caldwell), and on the flat boat on 
which they traveled down the Mississippi river with all their 
household goods, cattle and horses, twin sons were born. They 
had nine sons and two daughters. Miss Ophelia Polk Brigham 
of Abilene, Texas, sent in this information some j^ears ago, in 
the effort to connect her family with Thomas^ Brigham. She 
thought they moved to Louisiana in 1825 and were from 
Tennessee. 

ABRAHAM BRIGHAM, who was born in Winchester, 
N. H., 10 June, 1751, and died in Chelsea, Vt., 24 July, 1829, 
was doubtless of the Thomas^ line, but it has been impossible 
to place him in the correct family. He had a friendship with 
Henry Brigham of Barre, Mass., as evidenced by some letters, 
but they do not throw any light upon his origin. He was in 
the Revolution and served five years under Washington. After 
his death, his wife, Emma (Robbins) (1756-1846), drew a 
pension. His eldest son, Abraham (1782-1871), married 
Martha Hay ward of Norwich, Vt. (1785-1881). They had 
seven daughters and two sons who reached adult age : Oramel 
Abraham, born in Chelsea, Vt., 1831, lived in Lowell, Mass., 
over fifty years; his brother Cortez Thomas, born in 1834, 
lived in St. Johnsbury, Vt,, in 1903 ; had sons. 

We regret that correspondence with many persons bear- 
ing the name of Brigham has been futile, because the informa- 
tion they could give of their lineage was not sufficient to allow 
of their inclusion among the descendants of Thomas Brigham 
of Yorkshire, England, and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
